Sharif Hamza was born and raised in London but began his career as an image maker in New York where he is currently based.
Working simultaneously in both photography and motion, Sharif’s work is about story telling. His narrative process begins with the selection of his subject matter, those who can convey a sense of character in an abstract form. Sharif enjoys working within the context of fashion and sees it in a cinematic approach inventing scenes for his subjects whether shooting celebrities or models, that he captures in photography or motion.
Photographically Sharif’s images can be seen in a range of editorial platforms including Vogue, Interview and his longstanding relationship with Dazed. His personal films have been showcased on Nowness and films for clients like Persol demonstrate his perspective in creating unique cinematic work for brands.
