About Munir El Kadi

Munir El Kadi (1970), is an Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates based photographer. He is Iraqi, born in Beirut, Lebanon to parents of mixed Arab and Turkish roots where he lived for the first few years of life before moving to London, UK until age 10 before moving to Baghdad, Iraq. He has been living in Abu Dhabi for the past 16 years. He became interested in photography at the age of 14 when he received his first camera. His mother, Amal Al-Khedairy, originally a university lecturer and an art collector in Baghdad, later ran the first private cultural centre in Baghdad (Beit Iraqi) where he was exposed to aspects of Iraqi traditional crafts and heritage. Through her circle of architects, painters, photographers, poets, writers, ceramists, musicians and sculptorors he was also exposed to several aspects of fine arts. His father, Adnan El-Kadi was an accomplished commercial lawyer. Munir studied physics in his undergraduate and first master's degrees where he graduated top of the class. His second master's degree was completed in information systems with a focus on educational technology. It is his physics background which he feels is helping him understand the interactions between light and matter and his ability to capture it with the camera.

His photography has received several recognitions among them:
- Juror Award of Merit, International Fine Art Photography Competition 2013 - -. for the picture titled 'A wall in an abandoned fishing village'
- Special Mention in the Culture Category - IPA awards 2012 for the picture titled 'A Moment of Transcendence'
- Community exhibition CMYK special award from GPP for the picture titled 'A Moment of Transcendence'

He has travelled extensively around the world from a young age and again more recently. He currently lives in Abu Dhabi with his wife Jennifer, who herself models and does some photography and younger son Aadil. His older son moved to Canada to pursue his further studies.

Munir enjoys travel, cultural, nature and abstract photography. During his spare time when he is not shooting, he enjoys Argentinian tango dancing, reading and cultural activities.
