Shifting Sands: Photography and Beyond | Trent Morse. | Art+Auction

 March 2015

Born in Jerusalem in 1975, Steve Sabella is a Palestinian photographer and installation artist. At the age of 33 he moved to London, and now resides in Berlin. His works are about growing up under Israeli occupation, discovering art and love, and finding liberation from mental exile and a colonized imagination. With his camera he sets up a distinct world and then contradicts that setup, separating the things he sees into light and dark. Through his art, Sabella grapples with life in exile, with its distorting and destructive consequences. His is an art of understanding; it is poetic and suppresses neither expulsion nor salvation.
