Nabeel's photographs play with reflection and refraction, capturing transient moments glanced through windows, across streets and within puddles, glancing into the private narratives of each scene.

About

‘A London Minute’ is a selection of works from Yamam Nabeel’s larger photographic survey of London. These photographs play with reflection and refraction, capturing transient stolen moments glanced through windows, across streets and within puddles, giving the viewer access into the private narratives of each scene. The works often displays a quietness and introspection seemingly opposed to the hustle and bustle of London. There is clarity to his dreamy imagery that juxtaposes the individual against their landscape. Through Nabeel’s lens we see Londoners hiding in plain sight. 

Yamam Nabeel was born in Baghdad in 1976. Due to his father’s anti-regime stance he was made an ‘enemy of the state’, leading to his exile at aged four. Travelling around the world with his family before settling in Hungary for eleven years has made the concept of being an outsider the norm for Nabeel. Arriving in England at age sixteen without a word of English, Nabeel has consistently used the theme of exile in his writing and art from a very early age. His influences come from his Arabic heritage, his Hungarian upbringing and being a Londoner.
