Who is Rasha ?

Born and raised in Muharraq Bahrain, Rasha Yousif is passionate about documentary and travel photography focusing on culture, architecture and traditional ways of living. Capturing moving objects or vibrant colours are what keep her photos alive. Rasha carefully chooses her travel expeditions to showcase less travelled cultural destinations through her lens. Coming from a purely Finance background, colours and creativity are what keeps Rasha going and every day is a battle between her left and right brain!
