Qatar Today - - CULTURE > DOHA DIARY -

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.
