Co-founded by Saudi Arabian Princess HRH Reem Al-Faisal and Emirati Safa Al-Hamed, The Empty Quarter is the first of its kind in the region: the one and only gallery in the UAE & Middle East devoted exclusively to fine art photography and serving a rapidly growing membership of artists and photo enthusiasts.
The gallery deals with young emerging and international renowned established photographers such as award-winning Steve McCurry, Bruno Barbey, Marc Riboud, and Al-Moutasim Al Maskery, among others.
We develop internationally our concept being represented at “Paris Photo” twice. We won the BMW Paris Photo Award (2009) and published a number of books including “Oman 1971” in collaboration with Magnum photographer Bruno Barbey. The gallery also hosted the “Prix Pictet Earth” world tour (2009), Art Paris Art Fair among the 10 best galleries (2013).
