I am an Egyptian photographer working across the spectrum of social documentary and portrait photography. While studying, I started combining my experience in communication & psychology to tell stories that deconstruct and question the public's perception of the prevailing power of patriarchy. 

My photography is a process of intuitive connections and collaborations with people that serve to empower them, providing a platform to tell their stories.

My work largely explores gender equality and women empowerment issues. I strive to push the boundaries through my work by exploring rarely documented communities and topics.

Breadwinners is my official inaugural ongoing series focused on the significant role Egyptian women play, working as housekeepers, in supporting their own families as well as being a cornerstone in the lives of other families. I sought to capture my collaborators in proud, empowering, and humanistic ways that prompt viewers to appreciate and celebrate these dignified women and the work they do in their communities.
