Raed Bawayah

Born in 1971 in Katana, near Jerusalem.

Raed Bawayah is a graduate of the Naggar School of Photography, Media, and New Music in Musrara, Jerusalem. In 2006 he was invited by the city of Paris to the Cité Internationale des Arts.

Bawayah photographs people on the fringes of society with whom he identifies, and they trust him completely. The subjects are not portrayed as heroes and the scene is not heroic but rather simple and touching.
