A group of pink-winged flamingos started flying over the lake when they heard the sound of a drone. At that moment, I saw the ripples they made on the surface of the water below dancing in time with their ascent. It was a rare moment that made me feel humbled and inspired by the wonders of the natural world.

40-year-old Palestinian photojournalist,
He began his photography journey during the difficult winter of 2008, which was one of the most challenging periods in the history of Palestine.
His work filming war scenes garnered interest from people, which led him to discover his passion for telling stories of both happy and sad moments to his audience.
Driven by his passion, he devoted himself to mastering his craft, eventually becoming a professional photographer. His experiences during the Israeli-Palestinian conflict allowed him to witness the harsh realities of living in one of the most dangerous trouble spots in the world, including scenes of death, destruction, and disaster.
Through his lens, he aims to shed light on the reality of people living in such situations.
Shady's work has been internationally recognized on several occasions.
In 2012, he received an invitation from UNICEF to exhibit his photographs in Rome, Italy.
Over the past fifteen years, he has curated many local and international exhibitions and shown his photos to people all over the world, as well as newspapers and art websites, enabling them to travel the world and make an impact.
For the past five years, Shady has been living in Turkey, where he works as a photographer for major Turkish companies. He uses his skills to communicate the image and bring people closer to each other.
In February 2023, Shady had a challenging journalistic experience covering the earthquake that hit Turkey. He spent five days in the middle of the destruction, moving through the rubble and encountering both the dead and the injured. The experience was emotionally exhausting, and he took many photos that still hurt.
In short, Shady is committed to using his photography to capture the beauty of places and people, while also highlighting the harsh realities of living in conflict zones. He hopes that through his work, he can raise awareness and change people's perceptions of such situations.
