Having lived through the revolution in Cairo, Owise Abuzaid was tempted to become a photojournalist, but when his Canon EOS 550D was destroyed in a clash on the streets, he decided to stick with using an iPhone and turned his attention to more abstract views and perspectives. With almost 100,000 followers on Instagram today, and after recently finishing a photography program at the International Center Of Photography in New York, he is currently pursuing work in long term personal stories and documentaries.
