Abdulhamid Kircher

March 2023

Abdulhamid Kircher is an artist from Queens, New York. He was born in Berlin to German and Turkish parents and immigrated to the United States with his mother at eight. His work is a living archive of place and people, as it is also a dedication to the language of photography, the mechanics, and the aesthetic possibilities of the form. Through his devotion to classical forms of image-making and the radical experimentation required for each of his subjects, his process bridges the idea between document and narrative. He received his BA in Culture and Media from The New School in 2018 and his MFA in Visual Arts from the University of California San Diego in 2022. Abdul currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California.
