Photographer #167: Youssef Nabil

Egyptian photographer Youssef Nabil, 1972, works and lives in New York. His images are hand colored gelatin silver prints. Next to his portraits of singers, writers and actors, often from the Arab world, he makes self-portraits that "reflect his dislocated life away from Egypt." Youssef's images remind us of film-stills from earlier Egyptian and Arab movies. He has been in numerous solo and group exhibitions and released two books; Sleep in my Arms, 2007 and I won't let you die, 2008. The following images come from his portfolio's Works I, Works II and Works III.
