KHALID AL SAHALY
A picture tells a thousand stories

As a writer, when I interview people I’m looking for the story - the thread that I can use to piece an article together. Normally this doesn’t pose a problem, but when I met with seventeen-year-old Khalid Al Sahaly I wanted more from him.

After seeing his photography on his flickr page I was so impressed with what he could capture in a single image, I expected him to be able to articulate the same in words. But of course this is why he is a photographer, and this is why photography is such a powerful medium. One click and you can capture something that perhaps can never be expressed in words. A photograph can convey an emotion, a feeling; it can just make you feel something even if you don’t know what it is. I asked Khalid some questions but I felt the images on these pages said so much more than he could tell me or I could write so I’ll let the images speak for themselves.

What makes a good photograph?

One that carries a message, well-composed and exposed, and artistically presented.

Have you exhibited any of photos?

Yes. I've participated in two exhibitions so far, Kuwait Youth Photographers and Without Boundaries that was held in FA Gallery last year.

What are your photographs about?

In my photography I reflect my emotions, my state of mind or that of who I am photographing.

It always carries a vision or a story hidden in the details.

No doubt he is a great photographer with an artistic taste. I'm sure with more effort he is going to present even more powerful photos. He got the eye; he got the taste; he got the talent. Goodluck :-)

i first saw his photographs at FA Gallery, great work, love the shadows and the sense of comfortless in it.

KhaliD is one of the few photographers i know that has this wonderful vision. He corporates emotions with his images, words with his Black&Whites and art with his photos. Usually people in his age don't have this strong connection with "true" emotions. Be he taught me that age doesn't matter. I'd love to go on a photography trip with him one day :) Do your best Khalid, you were not active lately. I know you have so much more to give! Your amigo Ali
 
 
 
He is one the most talnted young photographers

Khaled Al-Sahaly, you are a fine and talanted photographer. The way you present your art always amazes me, I always admire your work. What I love the most is the messages you convey in your work, and how it touches souls and moves feelings and emotions!  They say: "A picture is worth a thousand words", and yours sure do!! Well done, and wish you all the best, Khaled!! ^_^
