I am an architect, with a master in sociology and PhD in urban geography. I studied photography nearly 40 years ago. Currently, I am preparing a book of photography entitled “The Streets of the World’s Cities in Images” with short narratives accompanying the photos.
Some of my pictures have been published in UN books and reports. Recently United Nations in Kenya organized a photo exhibition named “University of Garissa: A History of Hope and Change”. I got 17 honorable mentions for the International Photography Awards 2016 and an additional one in 2017 in the One Shoot: Climate Change Competition.
The Gallery Transient organized a solo photo exhibition of my pictures in May 2017 entitled Open Classrooms Close the Door to Terrorism.
In June 2017, I was distinguished by the Director’s Award 2017 of the Cartier-Bresson Passporte Prize in Street Photography with additional 6 photo nominations (http://www.thepassporte.com/2017-cartierbresson-passporte-award). I won first place in the International Photography Awards 2017 Non-Professional Event: Social Cause.
I am 60 years old and planning to return full speed to the photography world. Throughout these years, I have developed the eye, technique and knowledge to become a great photographer and age is certainly on my side.
