Khaled Akil

Born in Aleppo, Khaled is a self-taught Syrian photographer among the top emerging talents in his country.

Focusing primarily on social, political, and sexual issues abound in the Middle East, Khaled aims to portray the 'contradictions' inherent therein, in 'a way that is acceptable to the general public'.

Undoubtedly, holding a Bachelor's degree in Law and Political Science from the Beirut Arab University has enabled Khaled to further flesh out his artistic expressions of these contradictions and social issues which he observes on a daily basis. It has been his unique perspective, coupled with his undeniable talent as a photographer and artist that has garnered Khaled acclaim from his critics, and awarded him success at all his exhibitions thus far.
