” One of my dreams to travel the world with my camera, take photos of wildlife animals and under the sea creatures, swimming with whales, dolphins, etc. like a National Geographic photographer, so was the purpose of this project to create my own wildlife photography using some animals and sea creatures models in my room studio..” Amr Elshamy says.
Elshammy , also a filmmaker , started work on “LIFE” the later part 2016, working for 2 months. To make the detailed replicas , he had to partner with the Chinese company “MOJO FUN” . Also this project was a way for him to campaign against global warming and other form of environmental degradation. The clean outcome was achieved with photoshop.
