Maen Hammad

 I consider myself a dedicated creative, always encouraged to explore in the imaginative and to play around with the mundane. I have had my work published in international magazines and for organizations such as The New Yorker, Amnesty International, and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. I am a Magnum Foundation grantee as well as an Up Next member of Diverisfy Photo. I’ve been documenting the Palestinian skateboard scene for the last six years and I engage in reciprocal nourishment with this community. I was born in Palestine, raised in the American suburbs of Michigan, and am currently based in Washington, D.C. Alongside being a photographer and filmmaker I work as a human rights researcher and campaigner. I’m currently working on, Landing, a long-term documentary photography project with support from AFAC and the Prince Claus Foundation in partnership with the Magnum Foundation. I’ve had my work exhibited worldwide and in the permanent collection of the the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. I have had my thoughts published in TIME and i-D
