Arab Photography Now

About the Book:

Arab Photography Now shows the visual dynamics of Arab photography in all its fascinating beauty, revealing a rich new aesthetic. We see works of great political and cultural relevance by thirty-six photographers. Their visual imagery constitutes an exciting and instructive journey for the reader. Each of the contributing photographers was asked to supply a statement on his or her life and experience as an artist.


Many of the artistic expressions conveyed by these twenty-two Arab photographers address bicultural and bi-national narratives, thereby embodying the fleeting spatial and temporal landscapes that they inhabit. Those who have chosen to stay in their home countries, e.g. Palestine, Morocco, Algeria, Lebanon, Egypt, Libya, or the Gulf region, disclose a fascination with forms and methods of artistic practices as well as with the politics of ‘representations’ in journeys towards a self-determined modernity.
