Exhibited for the first time ever, the private photography collection of Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council, will be on display at The Dubai Photo Exhibition from March 16th to 19th.
This collection, which exemplifies Sheikh Hamdan’s strong passion for photography, offers a rare visual insight into the Trucial States of the 1960s and post-Union 1970s when the UAE was officially formed. When exploring these historic photographs, one is taken on a journey through time to relive a magical era when traditions and values were strong and the people lived simple yet beautiful lifestyles.
Dubai Photo Exhibition is held under the patronage of Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, and organised by the Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum International Photography Award, HIPA. It will be supported by the World Photography Organisation, WPO, and held in a purpose-built ‘temporary museum’ in the Dubai Design District, known as d3.
The event presents a diverse and exciting range of photographic masterpieces, highlighting a global perspective on photography through works from 23 countries around the world.
