Surreal Visions

10.07.2017

Hussam Eissa is an engineering student based in Alexandria. He started photography and digital manipulations as a hobby alongside his studies and now works as a freelancer. His series of artworks was developed over the past two years and is called “Surreal”. However, Hussam gave every image its own descriptive title.

His dreamlike photos are set in dark and fascinating surroundings while breaking natural boundaries. Whales and hands are the main subjects in his artworks. He explains; “Whales represent some sort of sensation that is deep and sad, yet calm and emotional. The hands represent the salvation or help from sadness.“
