Group exhibition by local and international artists on view at Cuadro Gallery
These emerging photographers have an intuitive way of capturing mundane moments that we are often unable to see.
DUBAI.- Cuadro Gallery is presenting “Do You See What I See,” a group exhibition by local and international artists: Ammar Al Attar, Farah Al Qasimi, Ayla Hibri and Michel Le Belhomme.

The show is the premier of “Sibeel Water” by Emirati artist Ammar Al Attar. It is the inaugural exhibition of Emirati artist Farah Al-Qasimi and Lebanese artist Ayla Hibri. It also debuts the work of French artist Michel Le Belhomme in the Middle East region.

These emerging photographers have an intuitive way of capturing mundane moments that we are often unable to see. Their work highlights these every day realities and provides us with an essential means through which to explore and understand our surroundings. The artists complement excellent visual composition with world-class production techniques that include photographing with rare large format films.

Cuadro Gallery Director Bashar Al Shroogi commented, “By the time most of the artists in our show were old enough to take photographs, film had been replaced with digital media so it is interesting to see them leaning towards large format film and vintage cameras to shoot their current series. Not only do these artists have an astute eye, they are also meticulous in their use of equipment to capture and develop their images.”

Ammar Al Attar: Sibeel Water
Al Attar presents a series of images that focus on the generosity reflected in the act of supplying free water to a community. Giving away an element so precious simultaneously highlights a deeply hospitable culture and an increasingly scarce resource.

Farah Al Qasimi: Sunset Circus
Farah Al Qasimi spent many summer holidays on the American east coast. Her memories of that foreign land as a carefree child inspire her to return there. She explores familiar sites in an attempt to immortalize the feelings of contentment and wonder that visit almost exclusively in the summertime.

Ayla Hibri: Amir Asil
Hibri travels to the remote roads of Yemen to discover a subculture of motorcyclists and explore the unique bond between man and metal.

Michel Le Belhomme: The Blind Beast
Le Belhomme distorts seemingly protective domicile enclosures to propose that they are nothing more than rickety boxes in our troubled minds.
