The Dubai Photo exhibition, March 16th-March 19th, 2016
A photo exhibition is not necessarily for photo enthusiasts. The beauty of a photograph is that it provides different interpretations to different people. What one person necessarily feels in one picture need not be the same to another. And this is why visiting a photo exhibition lands a spot in Offbeat Dubai. With different interpretations arise different opinions. And different opinions lead to interesting conversations. And who wouldn’t want a stimulating conversation with someone and spend an entertaining evening with them.
About the photo exhibition:
The photo exhibition features artists from all over the world. The exhibition serves as a merging of different cultures in one spot and promotes the spirit of expression through photos in the UAE. The exhibition features over 700 masterpieces from 23 countries. For UAE, Jassim Al Awadhi is one of the official curators of these photographs. It is extra special to him because some of the works of his former students are also being presented at this exhibition. Jassim Al Awadhi is one of the first eminent Emirati photographers who spent more than 20 years of his life as a crime scene photographer.
