Ahmad Hosni was born in Cairo, Egypt in 1974. He studied medicine and worked for three years before switching to photography. Since 2004 he has been working as a professional photographer for a variety of national and international publications. His work spans a range of photography fields, from gritty photojournalism to fashion documentary to editorial to art.

Lately, he has been taking a cross-disciplinary approach, borrowing from social sciences, anthropology and human geography. He currently lives between Cairo and Barcelona.
