Documentary photographer and visual artist Samar Hazboun centers her main body of work around women’s rights, with a particular focus on the Middle East. Born in Jerusalem and raised in the West Bank, Hazboun first explored photography while pursuing a degree in International Relations in Prague. Over the past four 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. Hazboun’s career has developed hand-in-hand with her ability to reach out to those who have been marginalized by society. With more than 30 solo shows and 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. Since receiving her MA in Photojournalism from the University of Westminster in London in 2011, Hazboun has been working on a series of exhibitions of her latest ongoing body of work, Hush. She currently splits her time living and working in Europe, Latin America and Palestine.
