Iman Al Dabbagh Photographer

Self-taught photographer from and based in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, Iman works on assignments for international publications, as well as, on self-assigned, long-term visual narratives addressing social and human issues, love and taboos in conservative societies, identity, self image, and the unnoticed stories in-between. The stories she makes are narrated by her own life events and experiences. As a daughter of immigrants and granddaughter refugees and growing up in a third culture, her diverse exposure to communities has taught her early on to accept and respect the “other”. And to embrace the “other” in herself. She moved to Los Angeles for higher education at 18, where she resided for a decade. During that time, Iman studied graphic design and worked in the print production and design field for several years before becoming a photographer. In 2016 she received a grant Arab Fund for Arts & Culture for her project “3eib” (Taboo) in Saudi, and in 2019 she received the Women Photograph + Nikon USA grant. Iman is a regular contributor to @EverydayMiddleEast since 2014 and is a member of the Women Photograph.
