Omar Imam (Damascus, 1979) is an Amsterdam-based, Syrian photographer and video artist. In his photographic works, Imam uses irony and a conceptual approach to respond to the violent situation in Syria. After leaving Damascus in late 2012, he began making fictional short films and he often has to publish his work under a pseudonym. 
Imam’s photographs vacillate between mundane documents and utterly inconceivable dreams. His project "Live, Love, Refugee" has been shown in 15 countries around the world.
In 2017 Omar won "Tim Hetherington" Visionary Award 2017 for his ongoing project 'Syrialism'.
In 2018 Omar has joined Rijksakademie as a resident artist.
