Inside Sajja | A Labor of Light

Gulf Photo Plus and Adopt-a-Camp are pleased to announce the exhibition Inside Sajja | A Labor of Light.  The exhibition is a visual exploration by a group of abandoned laborers, of their living environment in Sajja, an industrial area in Sharjah, as photographed by themselves.

The project was initiated by photographer Karen Dias in collaboration with the non-profit organization Adopt-a-Camp and presented in exhibition form by Gulf Photo Plus in the new Alserkal Avenue location.  All proceeds from exhibition print sales will be distributed directly to the laborers involved in the project.  Exhibition runs January 18 through to February 29, 2012.

The exhibition has been generously supported by Johnson & Johnson as well as Epson.
