About the exhibition:

»Unfinished Stories« is an exhibition at FOTOGALERIE Friedrichshain in Berlin showcasing a decade of documentary work by photographer Jonathan Rashad. Rashad’s courageous photography covers the events of the Egyptian revolution of 2011 up until the controversial Egyptian elections of 2013, the impact of Ethiopia’s 2015 nutritional program on a population whose growth had been stunted by malnutrition for decades, the persistence of racial segregation in the ostensibly post-apartheid climate of South Africa (2016), and the struggle of farmers caught between Egypt and Ethiopia’s ongoing dispute over the waters of the Nile (2015-2018).
‘Unfinished Stories’ is Rashad’s first solo exhibition in Europe.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Jonathan Rashad is an Egyptian photojournalist, director, and filmmaker, and has been producing visual stories since 2008. His work has focused on breaking news coverage and enduring portraits of people caught in the throes of crisis.

Rashad has covered stories in Ethiopia, Germany, Tunisia, South Africa, Turkey, Lebanon, Slovenia, Austria, Hungary, and Mexico. His work has been published by National Geographic, Time Magazine, Der Spiegel, UNICEF, and The New York Times, and has been shown at the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe in Hamburg, the Fifth European Month of Photography in Berlin, the East Wing Gallery in Dubai, the University of Washington Bothell, as well as the Photoville Gallery in New York.
