Metaphors

We take a peek at Jaber Al Azmeh's horsey exhibition at the Green Art Gallery...

This may look like a collection of horsey photographs, but the eye of Jaber Al Azmeh and the way he poisitons his lens can reveal vistas in the ridge of a horses back, and rivers in its muscles. Al Azmeh captures the essential drama of the way a horse moves. It’s a sensual style of photography, slow and impressionistic, but these are arresting works by the emerging Syrian photographer.

The close up shots are particularly effective and reveal the photographer’s fascination with texture and tissue, with the nuances of shape that can only be found in skin and hair. It’s an implicitly kinetic style of photography that reflects the constant movement of an animal, the buzzing, twitching shape of life.
