[ISEA2014] Curator Statement: Atteqa Ali (Site Supervisor) – THE EMPTY QUARTER

Curator Statement

The Empty Quarter – Fine Art Photography is the only gallery in Dubai devoted exclusively to fine art photography and serving a rapidly growing membership of artists and photo enthusiasts. Our goal is to expand the understanding and appreciation of photography as an artistic medium. The gallery deals with young emerging and established photographers. Discover and celebrate photography from all continents and various points of views: documentary, fine art, photojournalism, poetic, personal, abstract, human, and street photography. Read essays, analysis and criticism about photography and culture. Listen to audio interviews, view documentaries of photographers, as well as rare and special edition books.

This gallery will host a video by Laura De Decker that explores the intersections of fundamentals in aesthetics of pattern, geometry, and movement through abstract video animation.
