On Photography

The art of capturing images has been fascinating in its scope, from documenting times, events and people to the current strides this wondrous art form is evolving into. 

In Arabia and the Middle East we are blessed with vivid colors, cultural and historic richness and heritage that makes photography more challenging and enjoyable.

“Filtering,
flickering furiously,
Cascading, captured images

Frozen cubes
of fragrant memories,
Caught
Within your caged shutters.

Age and people,
stand still on their tippy toes,
Paying you your due,
as you spread,
your gift of giving…’

-Excerpt from ‘Ode to My Other Eyes‘ 
Ni’mah Isma’il Nawwab
