I was 15 years old when I bought my first compact-camera I found happiness in shooting random people in the streets and listening to their stories. It helped me explore and learn more about myself. After a while, my focus went further to exhibitions and photo-awards. However, shortly I realized that the real-award is my own work and what my eye sees through my viewfinder.
When I turned 19 I wanted to enrich my vision. I started studying classical photography schools to learn and benefit from their legacy. Beside my colour images, I love B&W in which I feel and see the essence of the image, raw feelings away if any distraction.
People are always my inspiration the more I listen, the more I learn about different beliefs and identities. To me, social justice means fighting for the rights and freedoms of all people, not just your own, and I believe the images can amplify the voice of innocent people against the oppressors and implementers of injustice.
Now I am 21yo, I shoot more photoessays representing our culture In Egypt and our social issues.
