Sara Sallam is an Egyptian multidisciplinary artist, designer, and visual researcher based in the Netherlands. She works with photography, video, creative writing, and archival material, making hand-bound books and short films. Themes of absence and loss run throughout her work in which she explores ways of visualizing things we cannot see and portraying people we can no longer meet. Against this backdrop, she reflects on growing up in Egypt, criticizing the colonially-shaped attitudes that prevent Egyptians from relating to their past and ancestors. Sara holds a BA in Media Design from the German University in Cairo, an MA in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography from the London College of Communication, and an MA in Film and Photographic Studies from Leiden University. She has exhibited internationally and was awarded grants from Magnum Foundation and Mophradat. Her work is represented by Tintera Art Gallery (Cairo/London).
