Literature fuels the imagination of Canon Ambassador Menna Hossam. Her inspiration is drawn from diverse subject matter, ranging from Greek mythology and Shakespeare to Disney, but a common thread is the fairytale quality of her imagery, for which she has earned international acclaim.
Menna, who is based in Cairo, Egypt, discovered photography as a student in 2008 and turned professional soon after, but she has only recently started printing her images rather than always viewing them on screen. She found learning to print with a Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-1000 printer to be a revelation, and urges other photographers to take the plunge and make limited-edition photography prints.
Here, Menna discusses her voyage of discovery, and the power of print.
