“Helping my brother make wedding videos and observing his work closely attracted me to pictures in the first place. But I was more attuned to still pictures. That’s when I fell in love with photography,” says Samuel.
Samuel Habteab said he never thought he would end up taking photographs for a living, but now his passion for the profession can be easily observed in his photographs. “My passion for art, specifically photography, was so strong that all I wanted to do was get some education to nurture my basic skills and take pictures,” he says.
With that burning desire in his heart, he joined the Master Film and Photography Institute where he got to study and enhance his potential talent to become an expert photographer.
This young talent held a solo photograph exhibition at the TO.MO.CA gallery which was received well. Samuel’s collections mostly depict life in Addis Ababa with an intuitive look at trends that are changing the city. He portrays natural sceneries and tells human stories. Telling human stories may be one of the many reasons that this artist may reach great heights.
If you follow the works of Ethiopian photographers, then you probably would know Aida Muluneh, an artist that has been well recognized for her brilliant work. Samuel’s work is said to resemble Aida’s as they both focus on people.
Even though he is compared to other artists as well, his intelligent take on the modern life in Addis Ababa from different angles is said to be a unique attribute that sets him apart from other photographers.
A black and white picture of an elderly Muslim man that was featured at the exhibition is said to express the intertwined meanings of life, old age and religion. The picture of the girl selling lemons clearly shows the beauty of youth and life with an amazing depiction of light and shadows.
“Art is my being and inspiration that keeps me going. I’m in love with nature and photography,” said Samuel. After attending his exhibition, most people are in love with his work as well.
