Education: Art Academy Baghdad 1981-1986

During my childhood I grew up between my father's art. Since then my interest in it has increased. Because of this I studied graphic art at the art academy in Baghdad. After my studies I worked as a photojournalist in my native Iraq.

I migrated to the Netherlands in 1999. In the Netherlands I had many opportunities to further develop my talent. I have followed various courses in the field of photography and camera journalist.

In 2002 I published a photo album about the lives of asylum seekers in the Netherlands. I also gained experience as a camera journalist from the Netherlands for an Arab channel. I also made several short films that were shown during the Arab film festival in Rotterdam and Abu Dhabi film festival.
