Born in 1990, in Cairo, and based in Cairo. I attended the full time photography course at the London School of Photography in 2012. I am currently working on the Zawya Art House Cinema project initiated by Misr International Film.

SHOUF is, at the moment, preparing for a second exhibition in Cairo for early 2015.
