Travel Instagrammer of the Week: Muhammed Muheisen

Muhammed Muheisen (mmuheisen)
Muhammed Muheisen is a two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer. Unlike most professional photographers, he only uses his iPhone photos on his Instagram account.

Muhammed was born in Jerusalem in 1981 and graduated with a B.A. degree in journalism and political science. He joined the Associated Press in 2001 and currently is AP’s chief photographer for the Middle East, Pakistan and Afghanistan. He documented major events in the Middle East, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict (including the funeral of late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat), the US led-war in Iraq, and the capture of former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein. He spent four years in Pakistan as AP’s chief photographer for the region, the Yemeni revolution, and the Syrian civil war as well as events in Saudi Arabia, China, Afghanistan, Egypt, Jordan, Germany, Macedonia, Croatia, France, the Netherlands, New York, Serbia, Greece, South Africa, and the funeral procession of Nelson Mandela. Most recently he has been documenting the refugee crisis across Europe. His work has received numerous international awards.

Wishing you all a very happy Eid! #everydayrefugees #muhammedmuheisen #eid #iphoneonly
