London based artist Ibrahim Azab explores language, sculpture and performance within photography. Focusing on the photograph itself, he considers the photograph as an object which communicates through a visceral and physical process.  Highlighting the act of  “seeing” and the subconscious process. Significantly Azab’s work surrounds the subject of failure within photographic realism, playfully surfacing a phenomenological understanding of perspective, process and performance within the medium of photography.

Ibrahim Azab is also a formal member of Relvolv Collective - http://revolv.org.uk/about/
