NOEL JABBOUR - PHOTOGRAPHER INFO
Noel Jabbour is a Palestinian artist photographer born 1970 in Nazareth. She studied photography in Jerusalem and is based in Berlin, Germany. For more than a decade and a half, she has been placing the marginal at centre stage in her artistic work. Her photographs consistently expose a human dimension, an angle of vision, or a profound insight, which are usually unseen or ignored. In this, she performs one of art’s important tasks: rendering visible what is otherwise invisible. Jabbour’s art-making praxis has a transformative dimension as well: it expands our range of vision and shows us things that are important to see. Her work derives its power from a deliberate affinity with documentary photography and is represented in major public and private collections including the Musée Nicéphore Niépce, Chalon-sur-Saône; Zabludowicz Collection, London; Neuer Berliner Kunstverein, Berlin; the Israel Museum, Jerusalem. She is also the recipient of several major scholarships, prizes and residencies from the Berlin Senate, the Musée Nicéphore Niépce, Pépinières européennes pour jeunes artistes and the A.M. Qattan Foundation.
