I’m here, do you hear me? This is how those who pose for the camera of the visually impaired Isra Ismail Yusuf call out to help her adjust the frame. Isra Ismail Yusuf, a photography lover, takes pictures of people who were walking, working or just spending time on the beach of Alexandria to improve herself.
Isra, who is visually impaired from birth, uses her hands to adjust the distances and angles of the people she photographs.
Isra describes his love for his work as follows:
Isra Ismail Yusuf, a graduate of Arabic Language and Literature, hopes that her work at various points in Alexandria will provide enough experience to enter the media industry as a journalist. “It’s really hard work. However, I love being together with people and gaining experience because that’s where I learned photography better, where I could connect with people, and where I felt that I was doing what I love.”
Mrs. Rahmet Abdurrahman, who is just one of the people Isra photographed by the sea, said, “Her level of photography is really high. She uses her hands and our voices to determine the positions and angles. God bless her.” She made good wishes for Isra. We also appreciate Isra’s initiative and effort that pushes the limits and hope it will inspire many of us.
