We are ready to launch!

Planning the photo layout in the gallery

Simple Planning

Simple things like printing the images at home and creating a floor plan made all the difference when it came to hanging in the gallery...

Delivery of the photos. It was a warm afternoon!

On a hot day!

The day had arrived and we were unloading the photos ready to be hung in the gallery.

There is a lovely headline outside the gallery.

"Desert Rose"

 

Katara had created this lovely wall introduction next the the entrance to the gallery. 

 

Banner outside gallery - look out for it! Building 19.

Lovely banner.

Katara created this wonderful banner from one of my images outside the gallery, There is an English an an Arabic version.

 

Made to measure!

Checking everything was perfectly aligned during the installation was important to me. 

 

'Pearl essence' is the name of this photo. Qatar has a rich history of pearl diving, I I wanted to show this with the contrast between the old dhow boat and the modern architectural lines of the Qatar skyline. It is also the image on the banner outside and on the front cover of the catalogue. 

Thanks to the install team.

Install team.

The Katara installation team worked long and hard. We are very grateful for their efforts. 

 Many of the photos were printed at 2 meters wide, like this one called 'Ripple in time' over in the black and white section of the gallery.
