When I look in the mirror this becomes evident to me and this is when the issue of identity and photography become one. -Laura El Tantawy-

My Christmas gift  arrived  earlier.  My interview with Laura El -Tantawy ; a photographer, a professional and a woman  I direct some profound admiration and prompt attention for what she builds as signature:  a poetic, lyrical, subjective way to see, to feel and to talk to you and yes..she has a lot to say Read More…

Talented and successful advertisement and documentary photographers who accepted the challenge to break the stigma and to prove that wedding photography can be introduced in some high level of visual narrative and it isn’t about the kind of photography, but the kind of photographer

It’s the proof  how susceptible you  likely to feel while exposed to the power of  a beautiful -well executed- strong image. Read More…
