Gulf Photo Plus (GPP) is pleased to present a group exhibition of street photography curated by internationally celebrated photographer and instructor, Eric Kim.
Part of a Street Photography Series running at Gulf Photo Plus in November, internationally acclaimed photographer Eric Kim will also be leading workshops, a seminar and a movie screening on the topic of street photography.
Exhibiting photographs from all corners of the globe, the Street. collection celebrates the decisive moment; beautiful tableaus that play out before us in the public spaces that dot our paths every day. Each photo in the collection is vastly different from the next, capturing a humorous exchange, a curious juxtaposition, or a brief balance of visual elements amidst a chaotic overlap of everyday events.
Framing scenes that busy commuters pass by without a second glance, street photographers rekindle our interest in familiar surroundings. Patient observers, they watch and wait at times for hours, while others walk endlessly, exploring new territory or frequenting old haunts, in search of one frame that might communicate a compelling perspective of the human condition.
Featured photographers include:
Abdulsalam Al Amri
Ammar Al Attar
Faisal Al Fouzan
Laura El Tantawy
