Mohammad Dawood Wassl was born in 1975 in the Bamiyan province of Afghanistan.

After graduating from high school he joined the English training program and he is now working as a professional translator and speaks fluent English and both national languages, Dari and Pashto.

He divides his time between his works as translator and photographer and he is an active member of the 3rd Eye Photojournalism Centre.

Dawood considers photography an important way to express himself and reflect the aspects of people’s life and activities.

"My hope is that my photos will change the way people judge and observe themselves, and alter the negative image that foreigners have of Afghanistan."

Dawood´s pictures have been published in the Kabul Press and BBC websites and he has exhibited his work in Afghanistan and abroad.
