Dr. Osama Shukir Muhammed Amin​FRCP(Edinburgh), FRCP(Glasgow), FRCP(Ireland), FRCP(London), FACP, FCCP, FAHA, FRSA. I'm very interested in photography; I take photos of archaeological and ancient sites as well as artifacts housed in museums. But, I'm an associate professor of neurology and consultant neurologist!
My article and photos about the newly discovered tablet V of the Epic of Gilgamesh on the Ancient History Encyclopedia, in September 2015, drew the attention of the World to this hidden gem.
My main focus is Mesopotamian history; I contributed quite a few high-quality images of Mesopotamian artifacts, ancient Mesopotamian cities, Paleolithic caves in Iraq, and rock reliefs. I've published many articles on several websites about Mesopotamia. I'm also interested in ancient Egypt! But, I have contributed to almost all the World's civilizations.
I use Nikon D90, Nikon D610, and Nikon D750 cameras, with several lenses.

My Favorite Collection
The Iraq Museum in Baghdad displays a large number of statuettes (including fragments and heads) unearthed from the Diyala Region (Khafajah, Tell Asmar, and Tell Agbrab). The Sulaymaniyah (Slemani) Museum also houses 5 statuettes (given as a permanent load from the Iraq Museum in 1961 CE). Here you can find all of them, on display ones (including Tell Asmar Hoard and Nintu Temple Hoard). Several appear in many publications of the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago; the latter did the Diyala Region/Valley excavations in the 1930s. However, many I couldn't find in any publication (book, report, or article), except one (in an article by Lamia al-Gailani in 1972 CE in the Journal Iraq). Therefore, they might well have been confiscated or been donated to the Museum. If anyone has information (provenance) about these statuettes, please contact me. All of them were shot by My Nikon D750 camera.
