The Photography Studio at Manarat Al Saadiyat is presenting ‘Khaleejiness’ in collaboration with SWALIF Publishing House. The exhibition is based on ‘Encapsulated Volume 1: Photo-Essays on Khaleejiness’. The story is told through photographs, installations and videos of a newer generation, focusing on their photo-essays and personal exploration of Khaleejiness. Khaleeji means ‘of the Gulf’ and Khaleejiness is an exploration of Khaleeji identity as a multi-faceted, ever-changing feature of reality. There are works by 12 photographers at the exhibit. Tickets cost Dhs20 and can be booked here.
