NERMINE HAMMAM: CAIRO, TEXAS – A PHOTOGRAPHER'S DIARY (2014)
Edited by Rose Issa, with a foreword by Martin Barnes and essays by Rose Issa and Nermine Hammam
The photographer Nermine Hammam had been quietly working for several years when she suddenly came to international attention and acclaim with a series of photographs responding to the Egyptian Revolution of 2011. Since that moment, international public institutions have been eager to show her striking, multi-layered and beautifully rendered artworks, which always reveal a questioning and critical eye on events that unfold around her. Filled with illustrations and insightful essays, this publication shows why her images are such unique testaments to their time.
Artworks in a variety of media are interspersed with artists’ statements, essays by experts, poems and relevant literature, putting the innovative use of words in art into personal and historical contexts.
