Hanan Kazma

In her work, Hanan, a photographer living in Lebanon, explores the ideas of self and tries to re-examine the classic idea of portraiture, using a range of in-camera and post-production techniques. Often working as her own model, she experiments with how to represent the inner factors that make up our image rather than the image we project from the outside. 

Hanan is a very prolific artist and so far she has designed and published six books: “A Little Out of Tenderness” (2010), “Things I heard the light say” (2010), “In Solitude and Out of Control” (2011), “Unlike Things Must Meet” (2011, in collaboration with an American collage artist and poet Richard Leach), “Hacyka” (2012, in collaboration with a Belgian-based artist and photographer Cyril Berthault-Jacquier), and “A Brave Unbodied Scheme” (2013, in collaboration with Richard Leach). 

In 2011, Hanan had her first solo exhibition in Tripoli, Lebanon. 

We will be exhibiting a selection of Hanan’s self-portraits that we hope will show the variety of techniques and styles that she uses to construct a diverse concept of identity and to convey her stories. You can see more of Hanan's work on her page and find some of the books that she's published on her blurb page.
