Entry Description

"Hapi", God of The Nile, is one of the ancient Egyptian divinities that I'm working on, in this art project called Alienation. The divinities of Egyptian civilization found it difficult to accept the future, with what it holds of murder and injustice and suffering, hence they decided to leave after they realized that chaotic human behavior has a power which surpasses their civilization and that it was useless to stay. We will throw the divinities out of their context, we shall meet them in their exile, to discover the often endless suffering that comes with just leaving the Earth; in another sense, extraction from the environment does not necessarily mean extraction of the emotional content, on the contrary, the echo of the emotional content grows louder with time passing till logic loses its mind.

About Photographer

I was born in Alexandria, Egypt on July 5, 1979. As a child, my first interaction with art was through my father, an amateur painter. At the age of ten I took private lessons in drawing. During college, I was never satisfied with Business Administration as a major, so I choose to educate myself in arts to a level which enabled me later to put my first step in the art industry. Swinging between working as a 3D animator and an animation director I continued exploring the world of art just to figure out my passion about composition, lighting and concept more than other perspectives in the 3D field. Then I had decided to go further with photography, which I was already practicing as a hobby. Winning an award in a photography competition at the American arts festival in Qatar took my career towards an important curve, and that was the start for My professional career in photography. In the past 8 years I had successfully built an extensive portfolio with many international agencies and brands, my work had been exposed throughout international publications and magazines.
