photographer and visual artist Samar Hazboun centres her main body of
work around women's rights, with a particular focus on the Middle East. Born in Jerusalem
and raised in Palestine, Hazboun first explored photography whilst pursuing a degree in
International Relations at Metropolitan University in Prague. Over the years, her authentic interest in political expression through art and her personal relationship with the Palestinian case has led her to successfully fuse subject matter and medium into a budding practice of photojournalism.
With more than ten solo shows and twenty group exhibitions in over eight countries, and a wide variety of features in the media, she has persistently sought to give a voice to her projects and engage an ever-broadening public with stories desperately in need of an audience. In 2011, following the completion of her MA in Photojournalism from the University of Westminster in London, Hazboun set out to work in the United Kingdom on a series of exhibitions of her latest ongoing body of work, Hush.
She currently lives and works between London and Palestine.
