The Face of Gaza

The Empty Quarter Gallery is proud to present for the first time in the UAE, works by Miguel Àngel Sànchez in an extraordinary exhibition entitled “The Face of Gaza”.The photographic works comprising this exhibition are a faction of a long-term personal endeavor entitled “The will of existing”. In his own words Sanchez explains the meaning of this photographic journey: “I travel around the world looking for people and groups of population who are struggling to survive. I focus on people who are fighting to maintain their essence, their culture and their roots and whose very existence is threatened due to religious, political or social reasons.” Sanchez has explored various peoples and cultures. In “Portrait of Egyptians 2009” yet another part of “The will of existing” series, Sanchez has captured 110 residents of Cairo from all walks of life from musicians to politicians
