Mark Abouzeid travels the world to deliver his unique perspective on culture and the human condition through photos and words. His work is regularly featured in international publications, radio and tv including The New York Times, The Washington Post, Der Spiegel, South China Morning Post, Sydney Morning Herald, National Geographic, PBS, Voice of America TV, La Nazione (QN), The Italian, Adventure, South Florida Gourmet, Dove and many more.

As a photographer, Abouzeid applies the same empathic, photo realistic vision to Blues Musicians (A Year of Blues, 2010), Bedouin Tribes (Being Bedouin, 2009), MidEast Peace (My Enemy My Brother, 2007) and Renaissance portraits reinterpreted (The New New World, 2012). For his work and initiatives, Mark has received important recognition including that of the Italian National Association of Professional Photographers in 2008 and an Award for Peace by the Region of Puglia for the exhibit “My Enemy My Brother”.

Abouzeid recently curated the exhibit/events “Il Nuovo Nuovo Mondo…Non Sono Clandestino” with the support of the Comune of Florence and Uffizi Museum in Palazzo Vecchio’s Sala d’Arme (June 2012)With this exhibit, Abouzeid defined a new direction for photography using the past to redefine the present and inspire the future. His upcoming projects draw from this same philosophy applied in a unique manner across diverse sectors including fashion, culture and art. Read Less
