Twenty-five-year-old Cheb Moha (@chebmoha) was born in Iraq, raised in Libya and Canada, then couch-surfed his way across Europe and the Middle East. He’s settled (for a moment) in the United Arab Emirates. “I have never encountered a place that was boring to me,” says Moha, whose first photos were made with an old film camera and a roll of expired film. “The pictures were really bad,” he admits. But he’d found a way of connecting with people around the world. “It’s a very intimate thing to ask someone, ‘Can I take your picture?’ It created a lot of friendships, a lot of relationships and opportunities.”
From those opportunities, he’s built a career as a stylist, art director and photographer, with his images now hanging on gallery walls at GPP Photo Week, the Dubai-based photo festival organized by @gulfphotoplus. “I’m peeling back the layers of where I am and going beyond the confines of how things are usually seen,” he says.
Watch today’s story to see his portraits from across the Middle East.
