Photographer, Filmmaker, and Artist in Cairo Governorate, Egypt
I am a photojournalist with a passion for street photography and using my craft to support social causes, particularly in preserving heritage and historical sites. From August 2012 to March 2017, I served as a multimedia journalism officer at Aswat Masriya, a non-profit media project run by the Thomson Reuters Foundation. In this role, I was responsible for creating multimedia content about Egyptian social and cultural affairs, and also trained a team of interns and stringers.
Throughout my career, I have been honored with multiple awards for my photography, filmmaking, and essay writing. Of particular note, I won UNESCO's “Words of Tolerance” photo contest prize in 2016 and was a winner in the United Nations Alliance of Civilization conference photo contest in Baku, Azerbaijan in the same year.
