Social Codes || 2010 - 2012
The artist launched his career through those black and white photographs in 2010, with an aim to shed the light on the struggle faced by young Middle Eastern men and women towards issues of sexuality, and identity.
"I describe myself as a rebel against censorship. What I portray in my artwork is a part of who we are, and what happens in our everyday lives – whether it’s a love relationship between two women, or if it’s a young man exploring his sexuality - all this goes unspoke about, and falls under being censored. My job is to ‘break’ the censorship and bring up those topics to the surface. " - Ibi Ibrahim
