Amjad Faur received his BFA in Painting from the University of Arkansas in 2003, and his MFA in Photography from the University of Oregon in 2005. He has been working for over a decade with large format photography and it continues to be the means by which he conceptualizes, associates and produces his work. The visual content of Faur’s images is mostly informed by the transitional and elastic spaces found in the ethnic, political and religious labyrinth of the Middle East; the images are contingent on having been shot “in camera” so as to reinforce the visual abstractions contained within them. He is represented by PDX Contemporary Art, in Portland Oregon. Amjad joined the Evergreen faculty in 2012.
