Hi there,

I am Abdulsalam 'Khalid' Hamza, I am an Independent Travel and Documentary Photographer based in Abuja, Nigeria. I have a deep-rooted passion for Culture and I am also fascinated by the rise of Smartphone Technology especially in the area of Mobile Photography.

Photography is a medium for expression and even more for me, it helps me in experiencing my world. Photography can inform, educate and shape narratives and as such, it is always about storytelling -- to better help us see and understand situations.

With no prior education in Arts or Photography, I started to nurture my love for documenting in 2015 documenting everyday realities around me with my Mobile Phone as the only tool available to me at the time. I quickly found my voice and style through everyday practice and it has been an artistical journey of expression ever since.

My experiences exploring Nigeria has been and will continue to be a big influence on my photography, and this also balances well with my passion for cultures which is drawn from the fact that Nigeria is culturally blessed with beautiful and unique traditions. This passion is what I share with the world through photography.
