Ethereal Dreams & Hope is a smoke art photography portfolio by Nawfal Johnson Nur - but it is much more than another photo book of pretty pictures.
With this book, Nawfal hopes to reach out to people who live with chronic pain, and those who are struggling with depression. He has included 'Hope Quotations' and words of encouragement, along with some of his own story about dealing with pain and depression.
The author's goal with this project, Ethereal Dreams & Hope, is to bring at least a little reassurance that positive change is possible for people who may be feeling hopeless, and those who suffer with pain.
Having lived with ankylosing spondylitis for a long time, and coping with lengthy bouts of major depression has been a big struggle for Nawfal; nevertheless, as he will relate to you in this book - there is hope!
This is the Third Edition (uploaded on 30 Sept 2011), which has an expanded Artist's Statement section about the Smoke Artwork Collection. All other content... More > has remained the same.< Less

This book is an interesting and attractive work you will be proud to display in your home, keeping it handy to read and look through it again and again. The Abstract art photos are beautiful and unique, and each time you look at them you see something in the art work you did not notice before. The author's sincere testimony of what it is like living with chronic pain and the depression which often accompanies that challenge is as inspiring as the art work is beautiful. I believe anyone will benefit from his encouraging words and will gain strength from the 'hope quotes' that have helped him.
