About Us

Everyday Middle East is an Instagram feed by photographers working in the Middle East and North Africa. By displaying images from our day-to-day lives we hope to work against the stereotypes and visual tropes that are so prevalent about the region in the mainstream media.

Current @everydaymiddleeast contributors are: Dalia Khammissy, Bryan Denton, Tamara Abdul Hadi, Wissam Nassar, Tanya Habjouqa, Silvia Razgova, Newsha Tavakolian, Christina Rizk, Kiana Hayeri, Iman Aldabbagh, Alex Kay Potter, Laura Boushnak, Holly Pickett, Natalie Naccache, Mohamed Somji, Tara Todras-Whitehill, Hanif Shoaei, Sarah Dea McGregor, David Degner, Ahmad Mousa, Faisal Al Fouzan, Tasneem Alsultan, and Lindsay Mackenzie (founder/admin).

Past Guest Contributors include Laura El Tantawy, Ed Ou, Samuel Aranda, and Gulf Photo Plus.

The project is inspired by @everydayafrica – a project conceived by Peter DiCampo and Austin Merrill.
