Abdel Berraha, New York Member Since August 2009 Artist Statement Since arriving in the US twenty years ago from Morocco, Abdel Berraha has been following his passion to record as much of the natural world as possible through photography. In Morocco, his camera never left his side, photographing many events while working in human resources. Deciding to expand his world and move to NYC, he attended classes at the Fashion Institute for Technology. His collections of work are massive and as diverse and his knowledge and ability to move in new directions with photography. Beginning a new life has been a challenging and rewarding opportunity, and Mr. Berraha often can be heard commenting- ‘I have no regrets’. His optimism delights all the people’s lives he touches with his camera.
