The seventh edition of Slidefest organised by Gulf Photo Plus is back tomorrow in it's usual place, the Knowledge Village Auditorium.
If you are not familiar with Slidefest, it's an event organised by Gulf Photo Plus where photographers present their personal projects in a variety of genres that can range from documentary projects to fine art, still-life and landscape images. The event also aims to bring photographers (amateurs and pros) and people from the photography community together where people can network, connect and share stories.
Here's the line up of presenters for this edition:
Issa Saleh AlKindy
Issa AlKindy is a freelance photographer from Oman who works and lives between the UAE and Oman. He will present his latest project "The Rubber Chicken", a lighthearted reminder that just because you've grown up, doesn't mean you have to loose your sense of playfulness. I must say I was a bit baffled by these photos, so will be interested to see him talk about them.
Lamya Gargash will talk about her series "Through the Looking Glass" which is currently exhibited at The Third Line. The series examines identity, perception and acceptance in modern day society.
Sara Naim's work has been exhibited in Dubai, London, Cologne, New York and Guernsey. She will present her multiple-veined series developed from the idea of photographing the "intangible". Using liquid to portray sound, e-xrays to beautify defect, and skin cells to contemplate boundaries, Naim explores elements of existence that are unusually challenging to portray visually.
Date: Wednesday, 16th May at 7pm
