On Hot Soil: Group exhibition of fine art photography on view at The Empty Quarter
Bruno Barbey, The City Wall Essaouira 1987.

DUBAI.- The Empty Quarter presents its Ramadan 2015 selection of Fine Art photography from acclaimed artists inspired by the Asian and Arabic cultures and their traditions. The exhibition brings together works taken on hot soils such as Africa, Morocco, Egypt and many others to unlock their traditions and cultures, and present them to the general public in order to open minds. While Peter Sanders created a striking and disparate record of the last vestiges of traditional Muslim societies in transition, Mario Marino - as well as Kai Löffelbein - explores the authenticity in the face of a hard-hitting reality.

Roland & Sabrina Michaud began their life together traveling through the mystic lands of the Orient discovering and documenting its wonders. Their images are poems written with light and shadow, colour and texture, transcending space and time. Bruno Barbey’s love for and fascination with Morocco, the land of his childhood, is evident in the colourful body of work shown in this exhibition.

This collection is a melting pot of cultures and beliefs, to be preserved and protected so that memories and traditions remain alive. Unlocking cultures through photography nurtures open minds and an appreciation of different ways of living: something we are not used to seeing “on hot soils”.

Bruno Barbey
Born in Morocco. In 1964 Barbey began his relationship with Magnum Photos, and became a full member in 1968. Over four decades, Bruno Barbey has journeyed across five continents and numerous world conflicts.

Kai Loffelbein

Roland & Sabrina Michaud

Peter Sanders
Born in London, he began his career in the mid-1960s. Towards the end of the 1970s, Sanders' attention turned inward which set him on a spiritual search that took him to India and onwards to the Muslim world.
