Mustafa Saeed is a young self-taught photographer. He lives in Hargeisa, Somalia, where he works as a graphic artist and photo editor.
He began creating posters for his family and friends and step-by-step started playing with his photographs by transforming, editing and combining them. For the past seven years he has been working on digital and photo experiments, and has recently added cinematographic research.
In 2014, he participated in the Addis Foto Fest, in Ethiopia, where he exhibited a series entitled “Home in Me,” which described the transition he underwent upon leaving Saudi Arabia at the age of thirteen to return to Somalia.

As you know, the Coronavirus is spreading worldwide. After Asia, Europe and the American continent, the African continent sees the Covid19 epidemic coming with great concern, given the limited health infrastructures available in some countries.
All the AAD teams wish to give their warm support to the artists, professionals, partners and volunteers involved in our projects throughout Africa.
We have preventively taken the decision to temporarily suspend all our activities in the field in order to participate in the security of all and to try stop the spread of the virus on the continent.
As we know today, the speed of implementation of measures to protect people on a collective scale is critical in the future fight against the impact of this virus.
