Patrick Tarek Kenawy is an Egyptian Dutch photographer and director based and working in Amsterdam and further afield. From his early teenage years, he immersed himself in the world of photography, games and film, drawing inspiration from his love for storytelling in media.

After visiting Japan in 2014 he became so inspired by the culture and its crowded yet, peaceful environment and lifestyle that it made him want to capture all moments on camera. From that moment on, he had found his passion in photography and film wherein he can share and mesmerize that peaceful and strong feeling in the moments he creates.

“Kenawy’s interest in storytelling through combining stories, cultures, diversity in people and places around the world makes his work unique between his commercial, documentary and personal work. Kenawy’s style blends fashion, street culture, sports and wholesome stories with real people.”
