Do you remember “The Hourglass Game“? 🐙🌷❤ She’s from my Spilled Milk exhibition back in 2013! 😄 I wanted to share her for this weeks #throwbackthursday! 😊 I wanted to try something different than my usual color palettes and compositions, so I went outside the box with this one! 🎨🖌 The outcome was my first attempt and breaking down the girl’s figure. I wanted to portray a certain mood so I used deeper colors in the background and tried some slash-like dripping effects! 🖤❤️ It was really fun to try something opposite of what I would normally make! 😆 She serves as a reminder to push myself to try new things while painting because you never know what the outcome may be! 😉💖 I even made her one of the images you can choose in my new Custom Print Shop on store.camilladerro.com! 😁 I have over 50 images you can choose as well as what paper type and size! 😀Whatever choices you want, I’ll make it and send it to you! 💌💕 Please check it out ☺ and make sure have a great morning cuties!

Two-time Pulitzer Prize winning photographer Muhammed Muheisen
Muhammed Muheisen was born in Jerusalem in 1981 and graduated with a degree in journalism and political science. He is the Associated Press chief photographer for the Middle East, Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Muheisen joined the Associated Press in 2001, covering major events in the Middle East, such as the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the funeral of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, the U.S.-led war in Iraq and the capture of former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein. He spent four years in Pakistan as AP’s chief photographer for that country. Muheisen documented the Yemeni revolution and the Syrian civil war as well as events in Saudi Arabia, China, Afghanistan, Egypt, Jordan, Germany, Macedonia, Croatia, France, the Netherlands, New York, Serbia, Greece, and South Africa, including the funeral procession of Nelson Mandela. Most recently he has been documenting the refugee crisis across Europe.
His work has received numerous international awards, including: Two-time Breaking News Pulitzer Prize winner, in 2005 and 2013, for covering the war in Iraq and the civil war in Syria; Picture of the Year for 2007; Time Magazine’s Best Wire Photographer of 2013; and the 2014 Oliver S. Gramling Award for journalism.
Muheisen also won multiple prizes in: the APME News Photos Award, the John L. Dougherty Award, Asia Media Awards, National Headliner Awards, the Atlanta Photojournalism Seminar, Festival Du Scoop, China International Press Photo Contest, NPPA Best of Photojournalism, Sigma Delta Chi Awards, Xposure International Photography Festival Award and the MCF Engaged Journalist Award. He participated in the 2012 World Press Photo Joop Swart Master Class, and served as a jury member in the 2016 Picture of the Year International, the 2015 World Press Photo Joop Swart Master Class and the 2013 Visa d’or award in that year’s Visa pour l’Image exhibition.
Muheisen is a member of the advisory committee for the Anja Niedringhaus Courage in Photojournalism Award, which is run by the International Women’s Media Foundation, and he’s on the nominating committee selecting the participants for the World Press Photo Joop Swart Master Class. In addition, he’s the founder of the Everyday Refugees project on Twitter.
Among other exhibitions, in 2013 a collection from a decade of Muheisen’s work about life in war was exhibited in the French photo festival Visa pour l'Image in Perpignan, France. In 2014 his work about refugees was exhibited at the Festival des Libertés in Brussels, and work of his covering displaced people was shown in the outdoor photographic exhibition the Fence in Brooklyn, Atlanta, Boston and Houston.
