A solo exhibition of works by renowned artist Akram Zaatari (b. 1966, Sidon, Lebanon). Co-Founder of the Arab Image Foundation, Zaatari’s work is focused around collecting, studying and archiving the photographic history of the Middle East, North Africa and the Arab diaspora.
Zaatari’s new work, The Script (2018), focuses on his interest in people’s attitudes while filming or photographing themselves, an exploration that emerged from his research of vernacular photography. Zaatari identifies recurring attitudes, fashions and forms of behaviour in front of the camera and how individuals choose to associate themselves with a social class, technology, modern values, or sometimes-dominant ideologies.
