An artist and activist, Serge Hamad has created a diverse body of photographic and graphic work that explores a range of subject matter, from human rights issues to figures in repose. His documentary work has focused on poverty, war crimes, censorship, and discrimination. In his best-known series, “Take a Stand,” Hamad explored the plight of persecuted Iranians—women, sexual minorities, and outspoken creative—in poignant portraits. “I use art to inform about sociopolitical situations, but I refuse to illustrate a judgment. I feel that an artwork is successful when once injected into the communication channels it manages to awake a dialog,” he has said of his recent work. Hamad’s more abstract photographs capture subjects relaxing on sprawling beaches or flowers resembling whirling dervishes, serving as serene, hopeful foils to his more political series.
