Mohamed Hassan – Souls

Originally from Alexandria, Mohamed Hassan has been living and working in Pembrokeshire, in west Wales in the UK since 2007, graduating with a first class honours degree in Photography from Carmarthen School of Art in 2016. Since then he has continued to photograph the human condition both in the studio environment and from real life scenes.
