Faisal Al Fouzan is a self-taught urban photographer from Kuwait, who finds inspiration from art, in all its forms. He considers the camera an extension of himself in which to capture his observations and preserve them forever. His work focuses in the urban and social landscapes of Kuwait, often portraying marginalized people, architecture, urban decay, and the banal objects of everyday scenes that usually go unnoticed.
