Over the past few years I have been traveling the world taking pictures, intrigued by what is foreign and exploring what is new to me. From my personal evolution and gained experience as a photographer, my perspective of the manifested world surrounding me has changed.

Three years ago I started roaming the streets of Egypt, exploring it with my new eyes. Wandering through the streets of my country I began to see it differently, and appreciate it for what it is.

My work explores the different aspects of belonging; the relationship between identity and place. Through my lens, I capture the daily and the mundane of everyday life as it takes shape in the complex and chaotic street environment.
