Description

OD Photo Prize 2023 | Shortlisted Artist

Mohamed Hassan [b. 1984] originally from Alexandria, has been living and working in Pembrokeshire, in west Wales in the UK since 2007, graduating with a 1st class honours degree in Photography from Carmarthen School of Art in 2016.


Artist Statement | “As an artist with dual nationality, this project explores my identity as part of an ever expanding diasporic community based in Wales. I draw inspiration from the memory of my complex yet loving relationship with my father. I reflect on his own personal struggle with bi-polar disorder, made clear to me by his eratic, reclusive, behaviour and his obsession with the small dark room, hidden within our family home. Through my lens, I seek to explore the complexity of the human experience and the legacy of a traumatic and uncertain childhood, of living within a fragile environment and the desire to escape memories. My personal conflict about belonging is represented through the people I meet and the lands that I explore, both in Egypt and Wales. The constant feeling of displacement and questions of identity are forever present.” — Mohamed Hassan
