Event Venue : Gulf Photo Plus, Alserkal Avenue
The growing appeal and popularity of photobooks is on show until 31 August at this one-of-a-kind photographic hub, through a unique visual sampling of more than 30 photobooks from 12 different countries.
A wide spectrum of photobook forms is on display, including handbound versions and experimental booklets from Bon-Gah, an artist collective in Tehran, to a 630-page publication by Ahmed Mater from Saudi Arabia, documenting the changes taking place in the cityscape of modern-day Makkah. Through this collection, appreciative visitors will be able to examine both contemporary photography practices as well as historical documentation of life in the region from a photographer’s perspective.
