Ahmed Gaber is a freelance photographer from Egypt based in New York.
As a freelance photographer and self-taught visual artist, Ahmed Gaber works to capture stories of everyday people and experiences. By the use of a camera lens, he has sought eagerly across his homeland of Egypt for narratives yet to be revealed.
Born in the Nile Delta, Ahmed's first encounter with a camera was at the young age of 16 and, since then, his own vision of what this instrument can do has evolved as he grew to understand the role of visual media in shaping society today. When in search of stories, Ahmed continues to engage in communities, both new and familiar, with sincere curiosity and compassion. He considers his work to be a direct and honest reflection of the people, stories, and places he photographs; these, ultimately, become his central inspiration.
