Faisal Al Rais

Faisal Al Rais is an Emirati conceptual artist and photographer with a Bachelor’s in Media Communications. He has been an independent photographer for almost more than 20 years, using light and emotion to capture complex images. He is best known for his candid black and white shots of captivating street scenes of everyday life. Instead of simply documenting one thing, he finds inspiration in a melting pot of countries, cultures and subcultures. Heavily influenced by the work of American street photographer Vivian Maier. he is often inspired by nature, and through his photography, he aims to deconstruct, reconstruct, and highlight the beauty in the simplest things in life. Faisal pursues each project for several months, often several years. With a gift for finding myriad details to convey the bigger picture, his style is unaffected and naturalistic, allowing subjects to speak for themselves.

Faisal seeks to inspire others to look more carefully at the world around them and discover beauty in unusual places. He is determined to prove that photography is a medium as capable of artistic expression as painting or sculpture.
