“I found photography at an early age in my life”

My name is Habiyb Ali Shu’Aib. Habiyb means beloved one in Arabic. I was born and raised in Trenton, New Jersey.13522959_1041350982625163_889381452038416271_o I found photography at an early age of my life. Around the age of 9, my parents bought me a disposable camera, and my life changed. I loved the whole process of getting my pictures developed, hearing my fathers perspective and my mother praise of my photos. I’ve been in love ever since.

I believe there is beauty in everything.  From watching the sunset on the Trenton Makes bride to the rainy days in Wilbur Section.  As a photographer  I attempt to catch the essence of that beauty in my photos. Breaking physic laws by holding on to that moment forever.12963783_1016517975063747_1302220653630064564_n
