Doaa Nasr is a freelance photographer and visual storyteller from Upper Egypt. Her interest is photojournalism and documentation focusing on people and their stories, especially women issues. The year 2011 was a turning point in her life. At the time, Egypt witnessed a political and emotional upheaval, with protests everywhere in the country. Capturing certain moments and incidents during this time gave her strength and a sense of freedom.

Upper Egypt is a very conservative society where working in photojournalism is very difficult for a woman; she is trying to change people’s views towards women as journalists. Doaa is a member of APJD and Women Photograph. She participated in a Nikon contest for photography in 2016, and got third place.

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.
