About the event
Join us on Saturday (10/29) from 7pm and onwards to celebrate the New York launch of Picture an Arab man, the debut photobook by Iraqi Canadian photographer Tamara Abdul Hadi.
With select images from the portrait series of the same name, this monograph presents the viewer with an alternative visual representation of the contemporary Arab man by Abdul Hadi and a reflection on how the Arab man might be seen – reframed and reimagined. The book features a foreword by Randa Jarrar and comes with a written contribution by one of three men photographed within the book- Yassin Alsalman, Omar Offendum and Hamed Sinno.
Tamara will be present at the event for a book singing of a limited number of books. Pre-order your copy here.
