Humans at War

Photographs by Hosam Katan

Hosam Katan

Hosam Katan, born 1994 in Aleppo, was only eighteen when he started working as a photojournalist for the Aleppo Media Center during the Syrian Civil War. His evocative pictures of a war-torn city struggling to survive were soon acquired by Reuters News Agency and published in numerous international magazines. The exhibition focuses on people’s everyday lives amidst the turmoil of war in Aleppo. Hosam Katan’s large-format photographs show life between despair and grief, between moments of joy, hope, and carrying on. The pictures don’t downplay the effects of the war, but show that human dignity survives even in the most extreme situations. Hosam Katan left his home country at the end of 2015 and today lives in Germany. His work has received numerous international awards. The exhibition follows on from the series of conversations at the gallery in the autumn of 2017, in which the photographer spoke about his work and his experiences in Syria.
