About the Owner

Adel Al-Yousifi is a Kuwaiti businessman, photographer, publisher, and social reformer. He awoke in London on the morning of August 2, 1990, to hear Iraqi troops had invaded his country. As days passed and Iraq showed no sign of withdrawing, Al-Yousifi determined to participate in his compatriots’ quest for Kuwait’s liberation.

He found his niche as a volunteer photographer for the Free Kuwait Campaign run out of the National Union of Kuwaiti Students’ headquarters on Porchester Terrace.

 

During the 7 months of the occupation, he recorded the FKC’s activities in more than 8,500 photos. From this collection, he culled several hundred photos for a book he published in 1997, Free Kuwait Campaign: a Testimony from London. He launched this website in 2012 to expand on the book with more photos, more text, and videos.

After returning to Kuwait in March 1991, he spent 8 months photographing the ravaged country. This effort resulted in 2 books and in the Evidence website.
