My name is Jalal Zahr and I try to capture what my eyes see.

I purchased my first point & shoot camera in 2004 and I instantly fell in love with photography. I started shooting with a DSLR in 2006 which allowed me to unlock my creativity and I've been chasing light ever since.

As we all do, I view the world in my own unique way. I am of Lebanese descent and have lived in the New York City Metro my entire life. Growing up in New York City and spending many summers in the mountains of Lebanon has given me a very unique visual experience with the huge contrast of the environments.

First world to Third world.
Concrete Jungle to slow village life.
Towering skyscrapers to vast Mediterranean vistas.
The cultural melting pot to thousands of years of history.

I use my camera to capture the world and I hope to share my adventures with as many people as possible. I hope you will follow me and watch as I grow.
