Dia Khalil is an explorer, and a photographer.
Dia Khalil, a Sudanese petroleum geologist by profession, photographer by passion. Started practicing photography since 2007 with a major interest in travel & street photography. I traveled around Sudan & outside of it as part of my job and that opened my eyes to beauty that I hasn't experienced before, fascinating by people and their stories, landscapes and scenery. I started taking photos and tell stories throw photography with a simple camera and shared my work with friends and family who encouraged me to nurture my newly discovered talent.
Hundreds of photographs later, I held my first exhibition in collaboration with my talented friend Ala Kheir. The joint exhibition- Feel the color- was a fusion of subjects, techniques and raw photography.
“Feel the color” open my eyes and my community to photography world therefore I fallowed it by many exhibitions like (stories from Suakin) in 2015 and in (Expressions) in 2019
I describe my relationship with photography as “as both Art and Technique. I express myself best via photography. I strive to tell my stories and my thoughts photography and produce well-crafted photographs that are rich in content and strongly express well my feelings”
I moved 8 years ago to Oman which adds a lot to my experience in life and my journey continues to explore the world by my eyes and my camera
