Egyptian still photographer Khaled Al-Telmissany died Tuesday in a fatal car accident on the Abou Redis-Taba road in Sinai while driving his car with his three children, who were seriously injured.

Born in 1966 in an art-centric family, Khaled Al-Telmissany started his career assisting his father Abdel-Qader, who was a known director and writer, before assisting his uncle Hassan and his cousin Tarek shooting movies before finally cooperating with a few important directors.

The highlights of his cinematic career included participating in important movies like Al-Ra'i wal Nisaa (1991), Arak el-balah (1998) and Ayam El-Sadat (2001).

His last professional works as a still photographer were with director Adel Adib in the TV series Gabal Al-Halal in 2014 and the movie Saiokom Mashkoor ya Bro in 2015.

Inspired by his sister, a novelist Mai El-Telmissany, Khaled also published three novels.

According to a Central Agency for Public Mobilisation and Statistics (CAPMAS) report in June 2017, the total number of car accidents in Egypt rose by 1.1 percent in 2016 to reach 14,710 accidents, resulting in 5,343 deaths, 18,646 injuries, and 21,089 damaged vehicles.  

Egypt’s high rate of traffic accidents is often attributed to poorly maintained infrastructure and loosely enforced traffic regulations.
