Through fresh eyes: RAMWC as seen by one of our visitors

Photography is a wonderful medium for showing us familiar things in new ways. For Mohamed Suliman, it also “allows us to see the beauty in front of our eyes.”

Mohamed is a grade 12 student in Winnipeg who moved here from Qatar in late 2020. Growing up fascinated by the work of professional photographers, his own journey into photography began after a visit to Eastern Africa in 2019. Being an accomplished photographer was a dream of his, so he practiced and practiced and slowly saw himself evolving into the photographer he dreamed of becoming.

When he’s behind the lens, the little things are important to him—textures, nature, light, expressions, and surroundings. All these details bring an experience together.

He recently visited our museum and called it “a stunning place.” The exhibits, interactive walls, and storytelling helped him to understand the role of aviation in space and war.

Mohamed loves using photography as a way to share the memories and moments life is filled with such as birthdays, weddings, graduations, anniversaries, and family vacations.

And what were his favourite parts of our museum? The suspended aircraft and all the natural light that enters the building thanks to its large windows.

Mohamed was gracious enough to share some of the photos he took during his time at the Royal Aviation Museum. Check them out in the gallery below!
