“Connecting Humanity” Photo Exhibition
January 20 @ 11:00 am - April 5 @ 11:00 pmFree
From 20 January until 5 April, Al Seef will share its scenery with the Streets of the World: ‘Connecting Humanity’. The exhibition is a body of work by Dutch photographer Jeroen Swolfs, which chronicles streetlife in different capitals of the world.
Created over seven years, ‘Connecting Humanity’ began as an exploration in diversity that led to exposing the unity and similarity of people across the globe. Where Swolfs assumed he would find differences, he saw a commonness that goes unappreciated by most. With his completed work the photographer has set off to show and share this visual investigation through a world-travelling exhibition, and Dubai is the first city on the stop.
Along with Swolfs work, the exhibition will also display photographs by contest winners who succeeded in capturing the ‘Soul of Dubai’ or the ‘Spirit of Trade’. In all, the exhibition will showcase 198 photographs spread across a 1.8km-long route along Dubai Creek for visitors to enjoy.
