Dr. Osama Shukir Muhammed Amin FRCP(Edinburgh), FRCP(Glasgow), FRCP(Ireland), FRCP(London), FACP, FAHA, FRSA. I'm very interested in photography; I take photos of archaeological and ancient sites as well as artifacts housed in museums. But, I'm an associate professor of neurology and consultant neurologist!
My article and photos about the newly discovered tablet V of the Epic of Gilgamesh on the Ancient History Encyclopedia, in September 2015, drew the attention of the World to this hidden gem.
My main focus is Mesopotamian history; I contributed quite a few high-quality images of Mesopotamian artifacts, ancient Mesopotamian cities, Paleolithic caves in Iraq, and rock reliefs. I've published many articles on several websites about Mesopotamia. I'm also interested in ancient Egypt! But, I have contributed to almost all World's civilizations.
I use Nikon D90, Nikon D610, and Nikon D750 cameras, with several lenses.
