Heba Khalifa (b.1977, Cairo) is a multimedia artist, photojournalist and painter. After graduating from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Cairo in 2000 with a Diploma in decorative cinema and theatre design, she studied at the High Institute of Art Critics. Khalifa uses photography as an essential part of her artistic projects, documenting and representing women and gender issues. She has worked for the prominent Arabic newspaper Al-Shorouk since 2008 and together with her photojournalistic work she dedicates her time to longer-term projects that explore more conceptual issues about women. In 2021, Khalifa also joined the Arab Documentary Photography Project (a partnership between AFAC, the Magnum Foundation, and the Prince Claus Fund) as a teacher’s assistant.

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.
