Reading - Karo Tribe in the Omo Valley, Ethiopia
Hesham Al-Humaid was born in Saudi Arabia in 1988 and began exploring photography from an early age. "In 2008, I began photographing my nephews and nieces - using old brother's non-professional Sony camera. Honestly, it was a part time hobby that I started doing when I had to stop my study at school. Not long time till I felt so passionate about seeing the whole world behind my camera and photography has become essential part of life."
In 2011, Hesham formed a photography expedition team, with whom he travels the world every year on various photographic assignments. They have have collaborated with initiatives such as the Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Almaktoum Photography Award and have won 11 FIAP Gold Medals and numerous other awards for their photographs.
