Sarah's love for photography came from her father as he was a photo journalist taking a camera to document his travels. Her first photo experience came with an old film camera. She took it everywhere. Then in the era of digital photography she fell in love with photographing the amazing landscapes and the urban cities of the countries she visited. Sarah told us: "My camera opened my eyes to the beauty of nature and made me realize how amazing and beautiful it is, and also what people think and do to evolve their own countries."
When we asked Sarah what drives her to take photos, she explained: "Why I do my photography is to show the world the beauty of the nature - landscapes - in the Arab world and the modern beauty in the Arab cities. As I am based in Kuwait, a country that was under war in the early 90’s, I love presenting its development to change the world prospective about my country."
Every photographer is searching for those precious moments, and Sarah's inspiration is best described in her own words: „The quest for inspiration is what inspires my work, guided by the dreamy and enchanting atmosphere of the natural beauty, created by God, as I try to transform my emotions into some form of evocative beauty. I am playing with lights, colors, shapes and contrast to magnify the natural landscape and the surreal appearance of the cityscapes. Sometimes people compare my photography with painting. Also, the photographs by professional photographers around the globe and those based in the Middle East are a true inspiration to my work and give me the urge to experience the world more.“
