Double Exposure Conversations: afikra x GPP

Double Exposure focuses on photography and photographers in and of the Arab world. The series is a collaboration with afikra, a global media and educational platform that promotes intellectualism and the diversity and richness of Arab culture and history through events online and around the world, 


Each session, moderated by either Mohamed Somji, Director of GPP, or Mikey Muhanna, Executive Director of afikra, hosts two photographers who run a discussion together. The name “Double Exposure” comes from the structure of the series wherein the two photographers are paired to talk to each other about their work, to discuss and interrogate their motivations, stories behind their photos, and their catalogue.
