Etibar Jafarov , started taking up photography in 2010.From the very first days, when I was taking photos, I was thinking about a project. Later I called this project The Colors of Azerbaijan. As a traveling photographer, I traveled around Azerbaijan as much as I could, capturing its historical monuments, ancient folk traditions and all its colors in my photos. For me, this was the rediscovery of my native Azerbaijan, and I was very proud to be born in Azerbaijan at that moment. I have shot in 33 countries around the world, but I have always been in a hurry to return to my native Azerbaijan and capture its mysterious beauty. I have been doing photography for over 10 years and over the years, I have been able to illustrate almost 40 percent of Azerbaijan on camera. By writing a little information about myself I invite you to look at the photos which I took.
