Abood Hamam had witnessed most of the major conflicts in his home country when risking his life to capture the truth behind Syria to the world. He has sent pictures to international news agencies using a pseudonym, Nur Furat. Later on, he was asked to use his photography to film the victory parade for the Islamic State celebrating their takeover of his home city, Raqqa. His pictures were used in an IS propaganda video and sent to international agencies.
