Mustafah Abdulaziz

Mustafah Abdulaziz was born in NYC and grew up in the Appalachian Mountains.

A chance encounter at 17 with “In The American West” and the idea of visually transporting a viewer into the intimate lives of strangers left a strong impression on him. His work explores social identification and how our ideas of self-representation create instances of cultural disconnect.

He has been a member of the international photography collective MJR since 2008. In 2010 he worked as the first contract photographer for The Wall Street Journal.

He drifts around America and translates the shit he doesn’t understand into photographs he partially does.
