Faisal Al Fouzan: Portraits of Kuwait

Post by Mark


VSCO has featured the very talented local photographer Faisal Al Fouzan and they’ve shared some of their favorite shots for the world to see. The photos are all incredible and I’m extremely jealous that I don’t have Faisal’s skills in recognizing and capturing moments. He’s super talented yet he only has 22,000 followers on instagram which I think is completely unfair when compared to some other instagrammers with the most horrid of shots and subjects. But that’s instagram for you.

Check out the feature [Here] and be sure to follow him on instagram @faisalthef

    1. He is a Local
    2. He is taking photographs of people who most probably won’t dare ask/challenge him when he’s taking his shots
    3. Anybody BRAVE enough to do this kind of stunt here in Kuwait will have the same output

      No matter what ethnicity people are they will make it known if they want their photo taken or not. It’s obvious that Faisal has a goal in mind and I’m sure he doesn’t just barge into someones private life and starts taking photos of them or of what they eat.

    I took a picture of a painting in a mall and was threatened by a guy to be beaten up if I don’t delete it. By the way he was not the painter and had absolutely no business. He claimed I took a picture of the couple who painted it. Is there a law forbidding taking pictures of people in public places?

    Ok you guys are way off the topic, while you should only be discussing that amazing Arabic version of beer-belly!
