Not your average photo walk. Develop a critical and surrealist practice whilst you experience the humble spirit of Ramadan, and explore the history one of Dubai's oldest neighbourhoods.

Workshop Date

1-day workshop
AED 395.00
What's Covered

Join artist Nahla Tabbaa and photographer Kathleen Hoare on a playful, narrative-rich photo walk around a neighborhood brimming with multi-layered stories, and bustling imagery.

 

Explore one of Dubai’s oldest neighborhoods at dusk to capture the city’s breathtaking skyline at sunset, unearth its rich history and its teeming streets.

 

Set at Iftar time, participants will be handed prompts that both direct, and challenge them to see and capture the urban environment differently.  This is NOT your average photo walk. Rather than focus on homogeneous photo content, participants will be able to develop a critical and surrealist practice, with equally refined technical support by Kathleen. Nahla will pepper the experience with anecdotes and nuggets of history of the old Dubai neighborhood, Naif.  

 

  • Practicing your photography skills on-the-go 
  • Learn camera settings & composition relevant to street photography 
  • See a different side of Dubai & see the city in a new light 
  • Savor delicious snacks and chai with other photography lovers
