IHRC is delighted to host visionary photographer and artist Nasreen Shaikh Jamal al-Lail’s work at its gallery in Wembley, northwest London.

See the latest press release here.

Jamal al-Lail’s work has been exhibited in England and Saudi Arabia. Her main areas of interest lie in the connection between space and self-identity; for example, being a Muslim in Britain and also, being raised partly in Saudi Arabia has deeply shaped the way she perceives cultures and the dynamism inherent in their movements. Jamal Al-Lail’s focus has been on developing an understanding of how an interaction between different ‘collective memories’ has created a unique set of problems about who one is and what one can become. She attempts to weave alterity into a form which can be understood by those who find themselves amidst the confluence of ever changing, constantly evolving global artistic forms.


Jamal al-Lail  is a First class graduate in Photography (BA) and has an MA from the University of Westminster.  Her work was exhibited at MAPS over the summer.

If you would like to attend the exhibition launch please contact  Space is limited so please book early.
