I’m a photographer based in Egypt and working around the Middle East. Born in Georgia, I studied philosophy and photojournalism at Western Kentucky University then interned and worked at newspapers, including the St. Petersburg Times. In 2008 I took my savings and I lived in Xinjiang, China working on a project about Uighur Identity.
In 2010 I came to Egypt, 9 months before the revolution. I lived beside Tahrir square, was one of the first photographers to enter eastern Libya, slipped into Bahrain to photograph for Time magazine, and worked in Syria twice, on the government and rebel side.
Two of my favorite personal projects include fancy pigeon portraits, and maharaganat music.
For the past 5 years I edited and mentored photographers for Panorama, a platform for showcasing the best photojournalistic work from Egypt.
I know Egypt well speak Egyptian Arabic, and call this place home.
