Bermondsey Project Space and Art Forward warmly invite you to the Launch Party of the Yamam Nabeel’s photography exhibition and the launch of his photography and poetry book.

From 6pm, Nabeel will be signing copies of the Fragments From Strange Lands.


Like shards of broken mirrors, collected over time and from far away places, the words and images of Yamam Nabeel reflect the fragmented self of a life in exile.

“As a child living in exile, images were all we carried with us; they were all that carried our memories”

Photography is something Yamam started experimenting with as a child. His family were forced to flee in Iraq in 1980, moving around Europe and the Middle East, before settling in Hungary where he spent his formative years, before the family relocated once again to the UK in 1992.

This book is the product of a life’s worth of reflection on the idea of home and on the reality of exile. Through his words and his images, the stories shared, and the journeys travelled, a deeply personal project is manifest.

Yamam Nabeel is a London-based Iraqi, writer and photographer, using vintage analogue cameras only, as well as a filmmaker, bringing words and imagery together to tell the stories of those whose voices have been muted.

To date Nabeel has had 10 solo exhibitions in London, Budapest, and Dubai, with two solo shows held at Bermondsey Project Space. His other exhibitions were shown at Studio 7/ Acralycize, London, Fitzrovia Gallery, London, 99 Bishopsgate, London, ICD Brookfield Place, Dubai and Fann-a-Porter, Dubai.

Previously, he was an independent producer for CNN, Channel 4 and Sky. Nabeel was the founder of FC Unity, an award-winning NGO combatting violence through sport.
