PHOTO EXHIBITION CAPTURES THE SOUL OF QATAR AND BRAZIL
Qatar Brazil: A Journey from the Amazon to the Desert is a unique visual interpretation of this year’s Qatar Brazil 2014 Year of Culture. A group of photographers from two different continents documented their journey as moments captured in time, engaging in an inspiring exchange of artistic discovery and cultural dialogue. The photography exhibition showcased the best works of Qatari and Brazilian photographers Aref Hussein, Abdullah Al Tamimi, Andre Joaquim and Leonardo Wen in Katara from June 3 to July 1 in Qatar Photographic Society’s Gallery 18.
Held in collaboration with the Qatar photographic Society (QPS) and the Ministry of Culture, Qatar Brazil 2014 sent two Qatari photographers from QPS on a two-week expedition across Brazil to photograph its landscapes, people, food, culture, and touristic highlights. In turn, two Brazilian photographers were invited to Qatar to journey across the Arabian Peninsula to experience its history, people, tradition, food and culture through Brazilian eyes.
