christmas comes early

So I was reading the news on the BBC World website last night and as always I went to the photo section. Immediately my eyes caught the ‘Your Photos’ section. Then I saw ‘Your Pictures of 2013′ subtitled (because it matters to me) ‘A selection of the best readers’ photos’. Immediately my heart sank because […]

Thuraya Al-Baqsami|Retrospective Exhibition 1970-2011

Homes:Dr. Tim Sullivan

Dr. Sullivan sent me this last night. He spread the pictures on the wall but felt they were lost, so he divided them by this sadu an ‘old bedouin woman who made it’ gave to him a few weeks ago. He says, ‘I say hello to the children every morning.’ That is so cool.

This is the first installment, the home […]

Cultural Re-Expressions 101

In 2004, my brother Tareq and I collaborated on an exhibition of his conception and design which he used ‘Cultural Re-Expressions 101′ as a working title for. Soon, that title disappeared and it became ‘that show you did with your brother Tareq at the Life Shopping Center’. Basically, he had this idea to present a […]
