AED5,000.00

The current exhibition entitled “Sequence” features the work of three photographers: Emirati artist Jalal Jamal, Germany’s Tor Seidel and Omani photographer Al-Moutasim Al-Maskery. The three artists explore the urbanscapes of the contemporary metropolis of Dubai and the rural landscape from which modern cities eventually emerge, presenting visions of the past, present and future of our urban and living environments.

Emirati photographer Jalal Jamal bin Thaneya continues to document areas of mystery and abandonment, telling a story of self-realisation, struggle and neglect. His series captures, as the gallery writes in the press release,

the inner workings of the petroleum industry and the fate of desolate gas stations in and around the country that reflect a past that is slowly being replaced by a new façade. Our relationship with petroleum has helped society advance into the modern era but with these advancements has come challenges such as war, the strain on our planets echo system and the lasting effect it will have on generations to come who may never see the benefits of this finite resource. The project takes on a neutral view on the subject and invites the viewer to contemplate a future when the time comes for the last barrel of oil to leave the country.

This is your chance to own one of the most exclusive Fine Art Photography Prints from this exhibition, of Petrol 01, 2016
