Ikram Abdulkadir is a Nairobi-born, Sweden-based photographer and artist, who has formed her own distinctive style. For Ikram, photography is a way of bridging the gap between two worlds — the nostalgia of old family photographs, with striking, intimate portraits set against everyday backdrops.
It is her refreshingly honest and warm approach to photography that has brought her much recognition, with collections in the Modern Art Museum, Malmö Konsthall, and Gothenburg Museum of Art, among others. Her work has been featured in The Guardian, and she continues to collaborate with publications like Paletten and Styleby Magazine. This year, she was even awarded Arbetets Museum’s documentary photography prize.
