“Look at this stuff, isn’t it neat? Wouldn’t you think my collection’s complete? Wouldn’t you think I’m the girl, the girl who has everything?” If you don’t know the lyrics to “Part of Your World” from The Little Mermaid, then you seriously need to rethink all your life decisions because you sir had no childhood.

Growing up in the 90s, everyone just had an obsession with Ariel. All the girls wanted to be mermaids, some of the boys wanted to be Prince Eric, but mostly, they wanted to be mermans. One Egyptian photographer understands the struggle, so he decided to make mermans exist. That photographer is Adel Essam.

“I started taking photographs around two years ago. As a photographer from Alexandria, the sea is a big source of inspiration to me,” Essam explains how his mermans came to life. “I always aim for my work to look natural and raw. I love it when you look at a photograph and it makes you feel things.”

Alive -This being human is a guest house Every morning a new arrival A joy, a depression, a meanness Some momentary awareness comes As an unexpected visitor Be grateful for whoever comes Because each has been sent as a Guide

Found in a box of bananas from the Philippines on the River Nile at an early age, Kurt is born to a Filipino mother and an Egyptian father which means emotionally he is completely screwed. Kurt is a bubbling cauldron of masculinity aside from his girly hair, camp voice and passion for One Direction.
