Mohammed-Nour Al-Khbesa is a photographer who started as an ambitious youth in 2011 taking photographs of Dhana, the village where he was born and raised. He began as an amateur photographer using a phone camera and gradually built his skills and equipment, turning his hobby into a career. He later created galleries and participated in bazaars and events focused on the heritage and culture of the area. His goal is to showcase the beauty of Dhana through his photography and attract more tourists to the region to learn about its heritage, culture, and traditions. He also created a pit stop where visitors can dress in traditional attire and learn more about Jordan and its history. He believes this project will benefit the economy of Jordan and that it started for the collective benefit before individualistic motives.
