Mahmoud Yakut is an Egyptian photographer, born September 1981. His work focuses mainly on documentary and environmental photography.

"Photography is a way to paint my visions of life, as a way to freeze a moment in time for eternity, a special moment where random elements of life detach themselves from the messy reality and come together in a defined space to form a glance of harmony. As a photographer, I have to be vigilant of these moments, to try to isolate these fragments of poetry when they come together", Mahmoud Yakut.
