Storia di un impero (Story of an Empire) is the story of an ancient and great culture, the Imperial China, legacy of a past rich in traditions and surrounded by a golden aura. Roofs and vapours of a hectic city stand out on the background, a frame that shows and permeates the historical setting, and in doing so it becomes a protagonist of an artwork that portraits two distant but at the same time close worlds, that coexist in the same space without touching each other.
Samir Khadem, photographer of Syrian origins, has always been passionate about images and technology. Since 2010, after a 10-year experience in the field of communication, he has devoted himself to art photography. Continuing to experiment with new styles and approaches, he has developed an eclectic eye, able to address different types of photography with a focus on modern architecture and street photography. After the first publication in the magazine T. Generation (# 56), in 2013 the magazine Digital Camera chooses one of his shots for the cover and dedicates to him an in-depth interview. The following year he publishes his photographs in Nikon Special - Photo Professional France and in Nikon Special - N photography Italy. Recommended by the Artistic Committee of the Park Association Arese Borromeo in 2013, he launches his career with the exhibition Reflections at the gallery Bazzini15 Milan. The exhibition is followed in 2014 by the participation in the collective exhibition at Assab One of Milan and a permanent exhibition at Art Cafe Pleasure (Milan). As a true ‘urban hunter’, as he likes to call  himself,  he explores new techniques of shooting and post-production, directing his photographic research towards a continuous improvement. In 2014 he won the prestigious First Prize Gold Plate in the Photography Prize "Arte" section by Cairo Editore in Milan.
