My name is Yasser Alaa Mobarak. I’m a 22-year-old amateur photographer based in Alexandria, Egypt. Photography for me is an artistic journey which I started when I was 18 years old. I have travelled to many cities across Egypt, exploring the diverse cultures that call this country home.

Although many people in Egypt have adopted a modern way of living, I try to focus on the traditional side of Egyptian life, as this is where I feel the most authenticity and uniqueness exists.

I have produced many images on my photographic journey from Alexandria to Aswan, Luxor and the Siwa Oasis. And I would like to share a few of my favourite photographs with you.

Let’s start with some portraits of Egyptian people…
