After weeks of preparation, including finalising the photographs and the final selection of images, working with the printing company and the wonderful people in Katara Cultural Village, Qatar, we finally opened the doors to show the photographs to the public. As always, I was thrilled to have my wife and baby with me during the opening night. My family is the cornerstone to everything I do.
You know, there is a HUGE difference between a 'like' on social media and a 'like' in person. To have the privilege of being present with those viewing your work, is truly magical. It is a visceral experience, a tangible experience and one I will never forget, as this was my first solo exhibition. If you are a photographer, I encourage you to have your work printed and displayed, even if only at home, it will make a huge difference to how you view your work.
I want to personally thank everyone that came on the opening night, and in particular Mr. Ahmad Al Sayed, Deputy General Manager of Katara Cultural Village, Qatar and the rest of the wonderful staff from Katara.
The exhibition runs to 25th July, 10pm, building 19 Katara Cultural Village, Qatar.
