Outside of our “professional” lives, we take a lot of mobile photos because we both feel they are a way to capture a place in a very honest way. Most people in Egypt don’t expect us to be snapping pix on our phones, so we see them in their daily lives, unvarnished. For us mobile photography is a sort of compulsive collecting of sorts. Yuli as an anthropologist and me as a historian. We are cataloging daily life in all the places we’ve lived and traveled to: Russia, the CIS, Europe, North African and the Middle East. - @japhetweeks, Japhet Weeks A lot of great photogs in the US were documenting Hurricane Sandy. Japhet and I publish from protests in Egypt. And if you search hashtags while events are breaking you’ll find professional and non-professional photographers alike sharing their images. A lot of the great work on Instagram isn’t breaking news. It’s compelling street photography from places like Tehran or Tajikistan or North Korea. But as more professionals embrace it, I think we’ll start seeing more, great, realtime images. - @sollsken, Yuli Sollsken Japhet Weeks, a multimedia journalist and Yuli Sollsken, a photojournalist, are a couple that live and work together in Cairo, Egypt. I was following Japhet from some months but never realized about Yuli. When I discovered that they are a couple, doing amazing images, each one from a particular view of the same event, subject sometimes, I couldn’t help but wanting to interview this cool American duo that happens to live in some of the most dangerous zone in the world. What could be a problem makes it a source of inspiration for doing their documenting work in a beautiful and unique way. - @fabsgrassi, Fabs G Click on the link in our profile to learn more about these amazing photojournalists and their use of mobile photography.
