Ahmed Qabel, Cairo (Back and Forth), Egypt

Alongside The Arab Fund for Arts and Culture (AFAC) and the Prince Claus Fund (PCF), we are pleased to announce eleven new projects to be supported as part of the eighth cycle of the Arab Documentary Photography Program (ADPP).

The Arab Documentary Photography Program offers production support for long-term creative projects within a six-month individual mentorship program with Randa Shaath, Eric Gottesman, Tanya Habjouqa, and Peter van Agtmael. Over the course of the program, the photographers come together for two intensive workshops to aid in the development of their projects. This year’s photographers are:

  • Ahmed Qabel, Cairo (Back and Forth) | Egypt

  • Ameen Abo Kaseem, My Short-Term Memory | Syria

  • Aya Albarghathy, Banished from Our City | Libya

  • Doaa Nasr, Suspended Until Further Notice | Egypt

  • Ghayyan Al Amine, Two Cities | Lebanon

  • Ieva Saudargaite Douaihi, The Last Garden | Lebanon

  • Lina Khlaid, Baby Pigeon | Jordan 

  • Mohamed Hozeyn, If I Move from Here I Would Die | Egypt

  • Mohammad Kotb, Misery of Soft Hands | Egypt

  • Nisreen Nader, Free Air | Yemen

  • Samar Abu Elouf, A Quote from Hell | Palestine

This year’s cohort was selected from 82 applications representing 14 Arab countries. Meeting virtually over two days, the jury committee was comprised of Magnum Foundation’s Executive Director Kristen Lubben; Lebanese photographer Dalia Khamissy; and Iraqi photographer and journalist Ghaith Abdul-Ahad.
