  • About the artwork

    Hamid Blad creates Barbie portraits with love. Love for the characters, who were all taken on a personal style and a beautifully designed dress or other garment. But love for photography too, because the chemical processes of a nineteenth-century technique gave each lady her own, almost surreal presentation.

    “When I photograph these dolls, I want to make them alive. I try to humanize them, to give them a real face with their imperfections. The goal is to be at the limit of surreality, through the richness of detail and optical blur. It’s a return to the origins of photography. It brings its imperfections and artifacts. This brings also its beauty.”

    This artwork is not framed. However, if you like to have this print framed: we suggest a grey or black aluminum 30 x 30 cm frame. After ordering the print you may contact us to know about the cost of the frame and have it added to your order. We will then frame the print for you.

Hamid Blad

Born in: 1966


Hamid Blad (Algeria, 1966) is first of all, a self-made photographer. He began his artistic career in traditional film photography. The grains, the old processes or alternatives had immediately fascinated him. After years of digital photography, he felt the need to find less smooth images. For ten years now, he practices only "slow photography" but at a very high speed. This does not imply that the photographer remains inactive during the shooting. His personal work consists mainly of the encounter of the contemporary image with the timeless processes. This confrontation is an essential part of his vision. Hamid Blad lives and works in Paris and London.
