|Hamdy Reda's Photo Diaries|
About Hamdy Reda
Visual artist, photographer, graphic designer, curator and the founder of (artellewa art space)
For me photography is not about what you choose to shoot and how good an image may be. It is a way to express emotions and experience life. It is more about my interaction with others, or even different environments.
Sometimes I take photos because I feel the intimacy of the moment with another person, a place, a certain time of the day, or even an idea that might come to my mind. And later when I start looking at them again and again it reassures me that my first impressions were right in most of the cases.
I had worked not only with digital but also with older types of cameras, ranging from the first kind of camera – the camera obscura – to the different sorts of analog cameras that I used to make photographs with for many years. I'm also interested in alternative processing techniques in developing my photographs.
