I have been following Tewfic El-Saway "The Travel Photographer" on his blog since inception, needless to say, I was thrilled to have my website featured on his site this morning.
Tewfic El-Saway is a freelance photographer who specializes in documenting endangered cultures and traditional ways of life in Asia, Latin America and Africa. Passionate about documentary-travel photography, he also produces multimedia stories, merging still photography and ambient sound. His particular interest is in photographing cultural ceremonies and tribal rituals such as the Maha Kumbh Mela and Pushkar Camel Fair of India; the 2,000-year-old performance-ritual of Theyyam in Kerala; Timket (Epiphany) festival in Ethiopia; the Hindu festivals in Bali, the ritualistic dances of the Advisasis of Chhattisgarh; the Tantric-based dances of Bhutan; and the exorcisms practiced by various Sufi sects of India. Tewfic teaches documentary photography and multimedia to emerging photojournalists, and also leads photo-expeditions/workshops for photographers who share his enthusiasm for unusual cultures, uncommon locations and lesser-known festivals. His style is a mix of travel photography and documentary photography, which participants in his expeditions describe as “photojournalism meeting travel photography."
