Take a walk in pil­grims’ foot­steps

The National - News - The Review - - Roundup -

The north-western corner of the Peo­ple’s Repub­lic of China, the Xin­jiang Uyghur Au­ton­o­mous Re­gion, is home to the Tak­la­makan Desert and 55 of­fi­cially recog­nised eth­nic mi­nori­ties, in­clud­ing the Mus­lim Uyghurs. The prod­uct of 10 year’s of ex­plo­ration, Lisa Ross’s solo ex­hi­bi­tion, Liv­ing Shrines, doc­u­ments the Uyghur’s sa­cred sites, or mazars, that are built to hon­our Sufi saints, but which are also home to de­vo­tional of­fer­ings and per­sonal prayers. Liv­ing Shrines is at Gulf Photo Plus from to­day un­til Septem­ber 2, and on June 7, Ross will be in Dubai to speak about her work. Visit www.gulf­pho­to­plus.com for more de­tails.
