Karim Rahoma, Celebrities Photographer Takes a Highly Realist and Candid Approach to His Art

Vienna-based celebrity photographer and actor Karim Rahoma may have chosen the camera lens as his primary professional residence, but he has passed through the essential realms of the entertainment business, having studied acting and singing and appearing in plays to television and film productions throughout his international career.

Rahoma’s upbringing by an Austrian mother and Egyptian father has helped to shape his photographic style and globe-traversing career, bouncing from Cannes Film Festival and Berlinale to Sundance, SAG and the Oscars in search of his subjects.
