Khalid Altahir Abdulmahmoud Alarabi was born in 1994 in Saudi Arabia to a family of well-known artists. He enjoys listening to religious tracks "Madeeh". He was very fond of reading from a very young age and has attempted to write mini-stories and poetry and received acclaim from his family and friends. He's enrolled in Elsheikh Mustafa El-Amin Secondary School for boys. He is aspiring to become an engineer/professional photographer when he grows up. As a little boy he was always intrigued by cameras until one day he took a portrait photo of his baby sister which fascinated the people around him, considering that he was just a little boy. He was inspired by his uncle Abd EL-Moniem by his devotion for photography. He's a doctor and he kept his love for photography and developed his talent into being a professional photographer. He thinks that every house should contain a camera because photos can capture what the eyes can't see. In the darkest of moments a beautiful photograph can make everything better. He thinks that people live in photos. Happiness, Joy, beauty, despair, wars, pain and a lot of other states could be captured in photos. And as they say "A picture is worth a thousand words"
