We look at the work behind Gulf Photo Plus and examine photography in Dubai…
Four years on, the Gulf’s premier showcase and learning springboard for contemporary photographers keeps getting bigger.
This time around, 13 of the world’s most celebrated lensmen touch down to show off their craft, including the likes of Zack Arias and Asim Rafiqui – you may not have heard of them, but they’re prominent players in commercial photography right now.
Rafiqui is definitely worth looking out for, a notable photojournalist who has reported on conflicts in Gaza, the tribal areas of Pakistan and has worked on numerous photo features for National Geographic in the past.
He’ll be delivering a workshop during the week, offering the tips and tricks he’s picked up during his career. Next week we’ll be giving a snap-by-snap account of what to see and a full lineup of events.
