Nermine Hammam

Egyptian 1967- 

Nermine Hammam is an Egyptian photo artist living and working between Cairo and London. She received her BFA in filmmaking from the Tisch School of Arts, New York University, after which she worked with Simon and Goodman Picture Company and Egyptian film director Youssef Chahine. Hammam is a photographer who digitally manipulates the images that she takes to create layered works that investigate one’s perception of reality. Amongst others, she is influenced by photographer Diane Arbus and Tarkovsky, a Russian filmmaker, and likewise captures individuals who are masking fragility and vulnerability. The works in Hammam’s series often reference her background in filmmaking as her images read like the stills of a film – creating a continuous narrative.

Hammam’s work has been widely exhibited and is included in private and public collections such as Tropenmuseum, Amsterdam; Victoria and Albert Museum, London; and Museo d’Arte Contemporanea Horcynus Orca (MACHO), Messina, Italy. In 2022, she showed her solo exhibition Aaru at Tintera Gallery, Cairo.
