Samra Šabanović

Samra Šabanović (b. Bosnia and Herzegovina) is a visual artist, photographer and filmmaker based in Helsinki. Her interests oscillate between philosophy in photography and politics: the right to be, human dignity, both love and inaccessibility in images. Currently, Samra is in pursuit to find out what (her) genuine film would be. Along with her self-deprecating humor, she employs immersive absurdism, the concept of refusal as a political act, and meta elements as an expression of doubt. Besides filmmaking, she has been mostly working with photography and combining it with text, video and performative narrative. ​Samra graduated from Academy of Arts in Novi Sad, holds a Master degree in Visual Cultures, Curating and Contemporary Art from Aalto University and is Academy of Moving People and Images alumna. In Helsinki she is co-curating a image-based research project "I was there but you didn't see me". Samra is available as a crew member for media and film productions (Creative Producer, Assistant Director, Cinematography for example) and for collaborations in wide range of media and art. ​
