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.
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.
makes a good photograph?
that carries a message, well-composed and exposed,
and artistically presented.
you exhibited any of photos?
I've participated in two exhibitions so far, Kuwait
Youth Photographers and Without Boundaries
that was held in FA Gallery last year.
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.
