Video: Light from the Middle East - New Photography

Light From the Middle East: New Photography is the first major museum exhibition dedicated to contemporary Middle Eastern photography, as curator Marta Weiss points out at the beginning of this film. Five of the artists whose work is included in the exhibition appear in the film: Abbas, Manal Al-Dowayan, John Jurayj, Nermine Hammam and Hassan Hajjaj. Each explains central themes and aims of their work, their background and the significance of being a Middle Eastern artist working and exhibiting at an international level.
