Born in June 1983 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Rita Kamel started her early school years in Athens, Greece, before moving to Lebanon at the age of 12 where she continued her education, ultimately graduating from the Holy Spirit University of Kaslik with a Master of Sciences in Business Administration.

At a very early age, Rita started showing an interest in arts, writing prose and poetry texts. The older she got, the more her artistic interest grew, leading her to expand her outreach towards other forms of art such as painting, sculpting, acting, dance, and music.

Continuing in the arts field, she started taking up photography as a hobby, later deciding to take it more seriously and use it as a means of expression alongside her personal blog – which she’s been keeping since 2006.

Her works focus on street and travel photography, as well as wildlife, conceptual, portraiture, sports, and citizen journalism. Along with getting her photos published in numerous magazines, she uses her photographs to support NGOs of her choice.

A serious activist, Rita is an influential member Beirut Street Photographers, believing Beirut to be a street photography paradise, a place that is never the same twice.
