Hidden In Plain Sight at BLISS in Taipei, Taiwan May 25th

Photos by Tewfic El-Sawy

I am pleased to announce that we are holding our 2nd event and photo exhibition benefit for Iraqi and Palestinian Refugees at Bliss in Taipei on May 25th.

Tewfic El-Sawy a freelance photographer who specializes in documenting endangered cultures and traditional life ways of Asia, Latin America and Africa has contributed 6 photos to Hidden In Plain Sight.

Tewfic El-Sawy images,
articles and photo features have been published in various magazines, and featured by
some of the largest adventure travel companies in the United States and Great Britain.
He's passionate about documentary-travel photography and frequently produces his work in
the form of multimedia stories, merging still photography and ambient sound (generally
recorded live while photographing), and musical soundtracks.

His interest in photographing cultural ceremonies and tribal rituals has resulted in
documentary coverage of the Maha Kumbh Mela & Pushkar Camel Fair of India; the
2,000-year-old performance-ritual of Theyyam in Kerala; Timket festivals in Ethiopia;
Hindu festivals in Bali, the ritualistic dances of the Advisasis of Chhattisgarh, the
Tantric-based dances of Bhutan and the violent exorcisms practiced in various Sufi
shrines of India. He also organizes and leads photo-expeditions to South and South East
