Islamabad’s Red Zone Rallies

Photos by Muhammed Muheisen

Associated Press chief photographer of Pakistan Muhammed Muheisen is currently in Islamabad covering the Red Zone rallies. 

Born in Jerusalem in 1981, Muheisen joined the AP in 2001, covering major events in the Middle East as well as events in Saudi Arabia, China, Afghanistan, Yemen, Egypt, Syria, France and South Africa. Winner of a Pulitzer Prize in both 2005 and 2013, Time Magazine described Muheisen’s photography as “inspired by a spirit of humanism and driven by an appreciation of the ensuring power of the visual narrative” and named him their Best Wire Photographer of 2013.
