Originally from Alexandria, Mohamed Hassan has been living and working in Pembrokeshire, in west Wales in the UK since 2007, graduating with a first class honours degree in Photography from Carmarthen School of Art in 2016. Since then he has continued to photograph the human condition both in the studio environment and from real life scenes.
The images in this exhibition pay tribute to life in his home country, Egypt where he spent March 2017 in Cairo exhibiting his solo show ‘Witnessing Wales’.
‘During this period, my first visit to Egypt since graduating, I began to see my home surroundings through fresh eyes – re-evaluating the environment and people and recognising them as valuable subject matter that could provide a strong and reflective body of work.
My aim in this series of images is to transform humble scenes and the real people of Egypt into captivating photographs’.
