Photos from Gulf Photo Plus's post #FollowFriday ∙ Mai Al Moataz⁣
@maialmoataz from Bahrain⁣

Mai Al Moataz is an artist, dead rose collector, and space designer. For the past decade, she has used black and white film to produce photographs and photograms through a meticulous analog darkroom process, a deeply cathartic ritual. Her images are romantically solitary and ethereal, as they present emblems of loneliness, longing, nostalgia and femininity.⁣

The full interview we did with Mai as part of #ProfilingPhotographers is available on our blog, via the link in our bio. Here are two questions excerpted from that:⁣

What draws you to the photographic medium?⁣
MM: Passion, obsession, visual expression, magic.⁣

Any advice or words of wisdom you'd like to share with our audience?⁣
Don't ever stop. And if you do, start again.⁣

#TutorialTuesday ∙ Focal Compression This week on #TutorialTuesday, what is focal compression? How does it affect your portraits?

We've all heard some variation of the saying: "the camera adds 10lbs". And no, it's not just an excuse. When using wider lenses, distortion can affect how the subject appears⏤making faces look strange.

Caleb is here to explain what focal compression is, what causes it, and how to avoid distortion in your portraits.

Tune in next week for more #TutorialTuesday!
Photos from Gulf Photo Plus's post #SpotlightSunday ∙ Sandra Zarneshan⁣⁣⁣⁣
@sandra_zarneshan ∙ @portrait_of_humanity⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
Born in Pescara (Italy) and raised by an Italian mother and Iranian father, Sandra graduated in International Political Science and worked as a PhD tutor till 2009, when she moved to Dubai. In 2015 she quit her corporate job to fully commit to photography. Still based in Dubai, she currently works as a freelance photographer focusing on interiors, architecture, and events.⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
The images above were shot handheld, lit by either the indoor lamps or natural light. Sandra says: ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
“In the first image there is my husband Fabrizio and our six-week-old son, Filippo.⁣ I took this photograph because I was exhausted and didn’t know what else to do. Having a baby shocked me in a way I never expected. I felt that neither my body nor my time belonged to me anymore. Taking the camera in my hands made me feel like I was still the person I was before. So I started photographing our life, all the good and bad moments I don’t want to forget, for the first time shooting inside my own home.”⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
The first image was selected for @portrait_of_humanity’s global tour and photo book, available through @bjp1854.⁣⁣⁣⁣

'The Anarchist Citizenship. Ode to Youthful Daredevils'⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Currently on exhibit at Kunsthal Rotterdaml Rotterdam until June 16, and recently featured in @bjp1854, is a project by @nadinestijns, @amalistique et al. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
‘The Anarchist Citizenship. Ode to Youthful Daredevils’ is a project by the researcher Amal Alhaag (1983) and the socially committed artist Nadine Stijns (1977) about the people of Somaliland. Since 1991, this territory in northwest Somalia has been operating as a self-declared independent state. In ‘The Anarchist Citizenship’, the duo researches how the Somalilanders are giving shape to their citizenship through fashion, architecture, friendship and culture. In collaboration with the depicted women, young people and other locals – often acting as art directors – Stijns and Alhaag manage to capture the unique visual culture of the Somalilanders in their photographs. Shown on silk fabric and plexiglass, the dozens of colourful photographs present an image that is much more nuanced and varied than dominant western views would suggest.'⁣⁣⁣

Photos from Gulf Photo Plus's post > Hidden Islam by Nicoló Degiorgis⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
One of our favourite photo books in the GPP Bookshop is 'Hidden Islam'. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Given that there are only 8 official mosques to cater to 1.35 million Muslims in Italy, the local communities have opened makeshift places of worship in garages, shops, warehouses and old factories. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Degiorgis explores these places of worship in 'Hidden Islam'. A uniquely constructed photo book, every page depicting a full exterior is actually a gatefold that opens up to reveal the hidden 'mosque' inside, in full color. ⁣⁣⁣

Photos from Gulf Photo Plus's post #SpotlightSunday ▪︎ Living Shrines⁣⁣
Lisa Ross ▪︎ @studiolisaross
⁣⁣
Lisa Ross is a New York based photographer, video artist, and educator. Her work revolves around the liminal spaces in which faith, culture and abstraction meet. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Ross also investigates physical manifestations of faith, with journeys to the Sahara and Sinai leading to an ongoing body of work exploring pilgrimage. In recent work, Ross made repeated visits in and around the Taklamakan Desert—visiting sites of Uyghur shrines. These hand-made markers of faith leave an indelible mark on the landscape—touching on cycles of life and death, pilgrimage and sainthood. They are an affirmation of existence, a collective experience that is overpowering in its very humility.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
At Gulf Photo Plus in 2017, Lisa exhibited ‘Living Shrines’, a series of ethereal photographs that take us on a journey through the Xinjiang region of China. Lisa spent over a decade documenting Islamic holy sites. These Uyghur shrines take on an otherworldly presence, having been adorned with the devotional offerings of those who pass through on pilgrimage, maintained over the course of centuries.⁣⁣
