Farras Abdelnour


Farras Abdelnour earned a PhD in electrical engineering from NYU Tandon School of Engineering. From 2011 to 2015 he was with Weill Cornell Medical College where he investigated the mathematical relationship between the brain’s function and structure. The influence of his mathematical background is evident in his minimalist style photography. In 2017 Farras earned his MPS graduate degree in digital photography from School of Visual Arts, New York, where he was awarded two grants. His thesis investigated the limits of minimalism and the concept of nothingness by repeatedly photographing sea and sky during and after dusk from the same location over the span of months. For the past seven years he has been pursuing several documentary and fine art projects. Having lived in Europe, Middle East, North Africa, and USA, he has been exposed to and influenced by rich cultures and granted a unique way of viewing life. His photography work has been exhibited in various venues in New York.
