Eyes Dazzle As They Search for The Truth [2022]
Amin Yousefi was born in 1996 in Abadan, Iran and holds an MA in Photography from the University of Westminster. He lives and works as a writer, researcher, and image-based artist in London. He has participated in several group exhibitions and prizes including recently being named a winner of the 2024 Foam Talent Award. His recent project, "Eyes Dazzle as They Search for the Truth," was selected as a finalist of the Carte Blanche Awards at Paris Photo in 2022 and subsequently shown with Ag Gallery at Unseen Art Fair 2023 in Amsterdam. His work has been published in magazines such as Hapax, Source, and Aperture, with the article in which he interviewed three artists on “What It Means to Make Photographs as a Young Artist in Iran”. Yousefi has also undertaken compelling commission works, including the project "Ruderal Acts, Gardening Beyond the Wall," showcased as part of the HerMAP Art Project at the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels, Belgium. He was also selected as an Ag Talent for his "Life, Death, and Other Similar Things" project in 2019, exhibited in a solo show at the Ag Galerie. Yousefi has an upcoming display in April 2024 with Circulation(s), at the Centquatre-Paris in France.  A native of Abadan in the province of Khuzestan, Iran's most oil-rich region and the scene of bloody war with neighbouring Iraq, Yousefi's work examines the event of photography through the socio-political aspect of the medium. His primary concern lies in the implications of the archive, exploring violence against protests in the Middle East enacted by the state and how the act of photography can conceptually mirror the structures of these relationships.

Hapax Magazine Issue 3 We have really enjoyed putting this one together and are excited for you to see the features inside by Amin Yousefi, Paulina Korobkiewicz, Immaculata Abba, Alexander Mourant and Helen Sear, as well as new curation from Rica Cerbarano, bringing together work from Anthony Luvera, Gohar Dashti and Mentalgassi. As ever, we commission these ideas for the pages of Hapax, and are not sharing works online. 

Hapax is created by commissioning international lens-based artists and curators who are keen to test new ideas which depart from their previously established creative practice. The result: a magazine quite distinct from the established model, as the content hasn't existed before, and will only be seen in its printed pages. We are interested in meeting artists we don't know yet, and curators who may be working outside the photographic sphere from across the globe. We encourage submissions from everyone, regardless of experience, qualification, nationality, geographical location or background.
