Hesham Elsherif, born in 1997, is a freelance photographer from Egypt and currently based in Dortmund, Germany. He started photography by documenting the daily life of his hometown, Fayoum.

Since then, he became interested in photographing cultural and social documentary stories.

He recently moved to Dortmund where he started his Masters in Photography at Fachhochschule Dortmund.

The profits (AED438 / $119.25) of each print sold will be given to artists currently in Gaza and the West Bank.

Prints are available for AED495.00 ($134.77). Here are the costs:

  • Printing and packaging: AED32.00 ($8.71)
  • 5% VAT: AED25.00 ($6.81)
  • Shipping: paid additionally by you, the buyer, and goes directly to the shipping company — no profits are generated from this.
  • Transfer fees: this cost depends on the recipients choice of transfer method, but this will be covered by the facilitating parties, and will not impact the final profit value

Gulf Photo Plus has been selling artwork by regional photographers since 2013, sharing profits equally. For this sale, all profits will be transferred to the Arab Fund for Arts and Culture (AFAC), which will then be distributed by AFAC to a group of Palestinian image-makers — how they use these funds is then wholly at their discretion. We will publicly provide proof of transfer at the conclusion of the sale.
