Aside from shooting Beyonce as she conquered the stage, the British-Egyptian artist also contributed to Bey’s 2015 calendar, shot everything from weddings to the Egyptian revolution and even had a London photography exhibit last year called “Eye.Soul: A Constant Work In Progress.”
Yosra was very transparent about her health and her treatments after her diagnosis, sharing pictures and videos of her chemo treatments and posting updates via her Instagram. Last spring, Beyonce dedicated a performance of “Halo” to her during the tour as well as sharing a mini-documentary on her passion for art and life.
