This autodidactic photographer employs no corrective methods to his photography.
His formal training is in communications, his professional experience ranging from fashion to advertising. His influences include Otto Steinert, Edward Weston and Harry Callahan. Sherif seeks to play with the human eye rather than address traditional methods of iconography; his photographs break scenographic conjunctions through optical trickery and a combination of inventive minimalism.
