Enas Lofty is a photographer who earned a bachelor’s degree in fine arts with an emphasis on oil painting. She is working with UN Women to create a photo archive that records women’s lives.
Lofty participated in the Dig Deeper Project, which encourages Egyptians to learn more about their culture and visit historical sites within Egypt. She also participated in a workshop with the Andalusia Center for Human Rights to create educational materials for children and illiterate women.
Since returning to Egypt, Lofty has been lending her photography skills to other Women’s Initiative fellows. She documented Azza Koura’s “Egypt and Future Paths” conference, and collaborated with Nora Haleem to document the Second Annual Ayman Ramzy Design Award. Lofty also documented Heba Wahsh’s work with orphans and covered the Egypt 2020 conference, at which Amany Eid was a moderator.
Lofty is passionate about combating sexual harassment and participated in Egypt’s first photo exhibition highlighting the issue. She also documented a campaign called “I Wish,” which raises awareness about harassment’s damaging effects.
Currently Lofty is preparing for a photo exhibit at the American University in Cairo that aims to raise awareness of women’s issues in Egypt.
