Omar Attum, assistant professor of biology in the School of Natural Sciences, recently published a book of photos based on his research trips to Egypt. Attum fell in love with the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt at the age of sixteen, and has been conducting wildlife research and surveys there since 1998.
In addition to his research, Attum is a self-taught photographer, with credits including National Geographic magazine, The Courier Journal, Outdoor Photographer, Popular Photography, Shutterbug, Egypt Today and The Jordan Times.
His recent publication, “Sinai: Landscape and Nature in Egypt’s Wilderness,” features 150 full-color photographs that feature the peninsula’s varying landscape and thriving wildlife, which are preceded by an introduction by Attum.
