I am shooting and producing a documentary by Mariana Ferreira Goncalves, and we will be following Ibi.
Ibi is a Yemeni photographer who is now studying film at the New School. He was born in a Muslim household and now lives in New York City. His photography portrays stories he heard throughout his childhood and teenage years, usually dealing with the challenges and sexuality in the Muslim culture.
He mostly photographs in Black & White. His photo shoots are staged, usually in his rooftop or garden in the East Village.
Ibi is a sweet and outgoing young man, and I'm happy I can get to know a bit more about the story behind his art.
More pictures can be seen at his WEBSITE.
