Dramatic lights, intense colors, diverse palettes, which through the years of artistic practice has become the signature of my photography. Based in Berlin and specialized in people, fashion and travel photography.

When I received my first camera at the age of seven, first lesson ever, was not to open the camera backdoor while exposing a film roll, I was a very curious child.

In the forth grade I won a simple kodak camera from a “Ghostbusters” sticker album. I grew up experimenting with the miraculous device, and learning to experience the world through its lens. Through experiments and plays, I gradually developed an artistic vision of the world.

Being an art enthusiastic and a talented drawer, beside my interest in psychology, philosophy and world history, have always it’s impact on my photographic visions. My family always encouraged me to take my own path and to chase my dreams, so I joined the Faculty of Applied Arts, Helwan University and gained my Bachelor degree in Advertising and Photography in 2001.

During the early 00′s I made a plenty of travel expedition in the Middle East and Europe, which taugh me a lot about the world.

After the revolution in Egypt in 2011 I exhibited my project “Egypt-Faces” at different avenues worldwide.

In challenging the division between art and design, I’m devoted to bridging the gap between the two, especially, to exploring the potential utility of an artwork. In my photographs I work to activate the utility and applicability aspects of my artwork in a social context by linking it to a historical background, a social phenomenon, a cultural dilemma, or a political event.

As I used to be politically active in Egypt and that I used to work for press agencies there, this fact has changed my view to the world and the subjects I discuss in my art and way I approach it.
