Yamam Nabeel

Yamam Nabeel is an Iraqi-born, London-based writer and photographer. 

Yamam was born in Baghdad, Iraq. Due to his father’s anti-regime stance he was made an ‘enemy of the state’, leading to his exile at aged four. Travelling around the world with his family before settling in Hungary for eleven years has made the concept of being an outsider the norm. Arriving in England at age sixteen without a word of English, Nabeel has consistently used the theme of exile in his writing and art from a very early age. His influences come from his Arabic heritage, his Hungarian upbringing and being a Londoner.
