The photographer who captured Beyonce’s sweeping Mrs. Carter World Tour lost her battle with cancer this week, passing away at the age of 33.

British-Egyptian Yosra el-Essawy lost her battle with Stage 4, inoperable esophageal cancer on October 25.

The photographer shot Beyonce’s tour and has a wide body of work to her name, including photos of the Egyptian revolution, weddings and a London photography exhibit in 2013 called “Eye.Soul: A Constant Work In Progress.”

El-Essawy was open regarding her battle with cancer, posting updates on her health and her treatments via her Instagram account.

Beyonce’s official website has dedicated a photo to remembering el-Essawy, for whom Beyonce performed a dedicated rendition of her hit “Halo” last spring.

“You will forever be embedded in the hearts of all you have encountered. May you rest in perfect peace,” Beyonce’s website said.
