Omar E. Saad
Omar is a graduate of Rutgers University with a major in Political Science and a minor in Art with a focus in photography. He believes that a photographer’s eye enhances his understanding of the moment and context in which he lives be it in Newark, the Middle East, Europe or Latin America. The rapid evolution in the quality of mobile phone cameras allows him to capture photographically the essence of these experiences at all times. He currently is working on his art in Bogotá, Colombia where he is a student at the University of Los Andes and where he photographs daily the allures of street life and the transition of a country from war to peace.
