In collaboration with the Dubai Mall, the Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum International Photography Award (HIPA) has announced the imminent launch of a black and white photography exhibition at the Dubai Mall titled, ‘The World of Black and White Photography’. Running until the 19th of August 2017, the exhibition will take place at the Fashion Catwalk inside the mall’s premises and will include a series of black and white photography from previous seasons of HIPA.
Commenting on the opening of the exhibition, the Secretary General of HIPA, His Excellency Ali bin Thalith said, “Black and white photography is one of the most recognisable and thought provoking forms of photography known to the arts community. At HIPA, our dedication to this niche form of photography has been evident with various categories open for photographers to take part in and showcase their skill in this nostalgic artistic expression. The opportunity to exhibit some of the best black and white photography submitted into HIPA in the past seven years was a unique one and we are delighted to be working with the Dubai Mall on this exciting project. The beauty of the exhibited photographs will no doubt blend in well with the glamour of the Fashion Catwalk, and we hope to leave a mark on the thousands of visitors that will see the exhibition. We also hope that this will be one of many future collaboration between HIPA and the Dubai Mall in the coming period.”
