Please welcome special guest: Photographer Yassine El Mansouri

One chilly afternoon I was surfing the Internet looking for a bit of inspiration when I happened upon Yassine's blog. What a treasure! Feeling quite fortunate to have found something so wonderful I vowed I would do more than simply view his photos.  So here, now I compell you to enjoy the photography that I have enjoyed, I encourage you to get to know Yassine...

Q: "What's your full name?"
A:"Yassine El Mansouri"

Q: "Where are you from?"
A: "I'm from Morocco, and live now in Arlington VA,  DC metro area"
Q: "How did you get started?"
A: "How did I get started! Well as a kid in Morocco my father had a small darkroom that he improvised between two closest. I used to spend time watching him develop pictures of me and my sister. It was one of his hobbies. Then around teenage hood I picked up one of the cameras he left behind, and started taking pictures of my sister, friends skateboarders."

Q: "What inspires your photography/style?"
A: "What inspires me!  Light, light, lights, the way we live. Life, solitude, people as they are, and the forgotten beauty"
