Ad's self portraits are born as a result of improvisational accidents, experiential reminiscences and a spur of the moment reflecting his dark sides and inner self.
Time, space and reality seem to be in a constant struggle with him, but when looking through the lens of Ad Achkar, it is evident to whom's will the image leans.
