Elias Halabi (b. 1984, Jerusalem) is a freelance photographer and artist, specializing in what he calls “Socio-Arts” photography. Halabi forged a skillful lens for socio-cultural interpretation through his B.A. in Sociology and Psychology from Bethlehem University (2006). In November 2011, Halabi earned a Professional Diploma in Management and Preservation of Artistic Cultural Heritage in the Near East from the Universita degli Studi del Piemonte Orientale Amedeo Avogadro in Vercelli, Italy. Halabi found his signature artistic voice when he realized the language of images and sight were more effective than the limitations of speech. Halabi has exhibited internationally in Palestine, Italy, Poland, France, Spain, Holland, Germany, the United States, England, and Jordan. Halabi also works with a number of NGOs, ministries, consulates, and The Nativity Church.
