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.

The Hargeysa Cultural Center was opened in August 2014 in Hargeysa, Somaliland. The Center was established by Redsea Cultural Foundation (RCF). Since its establishment, the Hargeysa Cultural Center has become an important feature in Hargeysa’s cultural landscape. The success of the center owes much to the respect that RCF has gained from its work on running the annual Hargeysa International Book Fair, which, now in its eighth year, has become one of the most admired cultural events in the region.
