Photographer Wafaa Samir lives and works in Cairo. Her work explores two main tracks; our relationships with urbanism and physical spaces, and a figurative representation of emotions and states of mind. She alternates her attention between these outer and inner worlds, approaching each very differently.
Samir earned her Bachelor’s degree in Architecture from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Cairo in 2013. In parallel, she nurtured her interest in photography and actively showcased in many group exhibitions In Cairo, Germany, Belgium, France and Dubai. Her participation at the 26th edition of the Youth Salon in Cairo earned her the Photography Award. In 2015 one of her photographs was selected as the official poster image for the 1st Biennale des Photographes du monde arabe in Paris, and another one was chosen as the poster for Mooov Film Festival, in which Samir also served as a jury member.
