Rasha Yousif | Eid In Zanzibar

Photo © Rasha Yousif-All Rights Reserved
I'm very pleased to learn that Rasha Yousif has just completed (well, almost) her photography website, as it showcases her photographic talents. She has returned from my just completed Sufi Saints of Rajasthan & Kashmir Photo Expedition-Workshop, during which she was immersed in her favorite element, photographing Islamic rituals and traditions. This is Rasha's second expedition/workshop with me; the first being The Oracles of Kerala in March of last year.

Perusing her images on her website reaffirms what we all recognized during these group workshops: Rasha is definitely at her best photographing people, and connecting with them through her camera and through her social skills.

She is making great strides in multimedia, and I encourage you to check her multimedia gallery, in which she showcases a number of well done audio slideshows converted to videos of her photographs and sound recorded on her trips. You can watch these on her Vimeo page. Rasha promised me she would complete her audio slideshow of the Sufi Urs in a few days (weeks?).

She is also active on Twitter, and you can follow her there.

Rasha is from Bahrain, where she works in the finance industry. She graduated from the University of Bahrain, and obtained her Masters in Finance from DePaul University.
