Born and raised in Kobar, a small village near Ramallah, Palestine. I obtained my first Bachelor’s degree in Journalism with a minor in Sociology from Birzeit University in Palestine, and that’s when I was introduced to Photography.Currently, I'm completing a second BA in Photography from Columbia College Chicago. I will be part of the graduating class in May 2017.
I've lived an abnormal life under the illegal Israeli occupation, that affected my perspective on the everyday activities of the people I meet. I strive to share a realistic image of Middle Eastern culture - with the focus on Palestinians - to audiences around the world. My photography showcases the daily lives of Palestinians, both in the homeland and in diaspora. You can see some of my work at Eyes on Main Street photo festival from April 8 to July 16, 2017.
