Exhibition space Tashkeel hosts a new exhibition From End to End curated by Lateefa bint Maktoum.
From End to End brings together six photographers from the UAE: Ola Allouz, Maitha Bughanoum, Yaghoub Al Hammadi, Mousa Al Raeesi, Faisal Al Rais, and Mona Al Tamimi.
30 photographs show to visitors how the natural world has been changed by human intervention – enormous amounts of single-use plastic, discarded fishing nets left to float in the sea and plastic microparticles that pollute the waters.
The works produced with shot on drones and mirrorless digital cameras open to public the modern environmental problems that man has created and that man can fix.
Al Awadhi, who has been taking photographs in the UAE since the 1990s, says the project is a call to action. Its title suggests that one phase of human destruction has come to an end and, hopefully, a different one is starting.
Photographer and co-curator Jassim Al Awadhi will be leading public group tours. The tours offer art and photography enthusiasts the chance to learn more about the curator’s process of selection as well as the processes and stories that led to the striking photographs.
Exhibition is open from January 18th to March 1st at Tashkeel Studio and Gallery in Nad Al Sheba, Dubai. For more details, please visit https://tashkeel.org
