Amr Mounib is a photographer whose work ranges from     photojournalism to fashion.  His primary interest lies in the interaction of light with subject matter, his primary focus, the spatial relationship between man-made and natural objects.  Mounib uses juxtaposition to create a language of shapes and movement, contrasting the fluid nature of natural forms with the geometry of man-made objects, and defining space with light and shadow.His compositions challenge the viewer to discover with him that light, growth, physics, change the nature of an object moment by moment, and that a moment never repeats. This sense of movement lends a sense of drama even to Mounib’s still life studies. As one longtime friend notes, “in Amr’s work, there’s always a hint of something happening.”  Earned a degree in Communications and Visual Media.
