Sham Enbashi

Sham Enbashi (b. 1988) is a Syrian photographer and architect who grew up in Dubai and now lives in Amsterdam. Graduated with Bachelor's of Architecture and Design at the American University of Sharjah in 2012, she worked as a full time architect in various firms for the following 8 years, the most recent is Studio PietBoon in Amsterdam. She was a fellow of the 2016 Salama bint Hamdan Emerging Artists Fellowship (SEAF) in AbuDhabi in partnership with the Rhode Island School of Design.

Sham’s attitude towards her photography practice involves observation, reflection and re-staging of her findings. She works with the medium of photography to question the relation between our objective and subjective reality; the relationship between the world out there and our internal experience of it. She achieves that through internal introspection, contemplation, conversations and drawing from her own personal encounters. Through her works, Sham tries to bring out the most personal sides of who we are and to shed light and document the internal transformations of a being within the context of his/her immediate social interactions.
