Yusuf Dahir gave up his life in Alberta, Canada to pursue his passion of telling the world about
Somaliland by using his camera. A firm believer in the power of photography, photography for
Yusuf is not just taking beautiful shots and keeping them, it is an embodiment of his living-long
goals of educating people about Somaliland’s heritage, telling stories of those people left behind;
people who are often not heard. Indeed he provides an intimate portrayal of the world we live in;
the air we breathe, the environment we inhabit and most importantly, the realities we live in. His
photography inspire others to appreciate the landscape surrounding us, sympathize with those
people captured by Yusuf’s camera and think about them.
The photo exhibitions at the Hargeysa Cultural Centre gives you a taste of Yusuf’s collection and
to get a glimpse of the world he offers you to grasp, think about and inform your actions as a
concerned citizen of this nation to serve its people and appreciate its heritage and history.
