His Highness also stressed the relevance of hosting such a landmark event in Dubai, which is fitting of the emirate’s ambitious plans to to act as a unifying umbrella for international creative minds.

Al Owais: Establishing a cultural base in Dubai

Commenting on the launch of the Dubai Photo Exhibition, His Excellency Abdulrahman Al Owais, UAE Minister of Health and Prevention and Chairman of the HIPA Board of Trustees said “HIPA aims through the Dubai Photo Exhibition to further develop Dubai into an international arts and culture hub. We aim to offer photographers an unforgettable and historic event which consists of the finest photography ever created by man”.

Al Nabouda: A golden opportunity for those with global aspirations

His Excellency Saeed Al Nabouda, the acting Director General of the Dubai Culture and Arts Authority and HIPA Board of Trustees Vice Chairman said “An event of the calibre of the Dubai Photo Exhibition offers photographers from all walks of life the chance to reach international recognition in the future. It can also help some plan their respective career paths by launching them into the very competitive yet exciting world of photography. Up and comers will also no doubt learn from the exhibited works taken by the various veterans and big names in the industry, helping them in their future plans. I invite all to visit this unique exhibition which epitomises Dubai’s hunger to promote excellence and up and comers side by side”.

The Secretary General of HIPA, His Excellency Ali bin Thalith said “An Exhibition such as DPE offers a unique photographic platform for one of the fastest growing art forms in the world, photography. The Dubai Photo Exhibition will also no doubt raise the standard of Arab photography by pitting the best photography from the UAE, Morocco and Egypt in their own exhibits alongside the other 20 countries.”

The Assistant Secretary General of HIPA, Sahar Al Zarei said “The works displayed at the Dubai Photo Exhibition can only be described as “breathtaking”. The visual masterpieces that will be on show will only strengthen the general public’s appreciation of arts and photography in particular. From Hippolyte Bayard’s famous 1840 photograph, considered by many to be the first portrait photograph ever taken to  modern day masterpieces that will be exhibited, the Dubai Photo Exhibition brings together different eras of photography under one roof, which we are delighted to be the hosts of. Photography at the Dubai Photo Exhibition was put together by the Chief Curator Zelda Cheatle alongside a number of internationally acclaimed curators such as Natasha Egan (USA & Canada) and Devika Singh (India)”.

Majid Abdulrahman: A spectacle filled with beauty

The head of media at His Highness the Crown of Prince of Dubai’s office and HIPA Board of Trustees member, Majid Abdulrahman described Dubai Photo Exhibition as a beautiful and joyful opportunity to showcase the art of photography in one the most beautiful and joyful places in the world, Dubai. He praised the exhibition’s organisation and encouraged people from all walks of life to take them time and visit the exhibition at the Dubai Design District (d3).

Bin Lahej: A cultural journey not to be missed

Emirati artist and HIPA Board of Trustees member, Matar bin Lahej said “This exhibition affords its visitors the chance to go on a journey through the various cultures and societies on display. This will not only serve as a tool to appreciate the arts will also bring people from different cultures together through photography. I am also very delighted to see the number of Emirati photographers who will take part in the exhibition. HIPA is therefore successfully continuing to promote the work of Emirati photographers in every way possible.

Al Mansouri: Photography is intertwined with humanity 

The director general of Dubai Media Incorporated’s channels and HIPA Board of Trustees member Ahmed Al Mansouri said “Photography has played a major role in documenting some of humanity’s major milestones and accomplishments, the two therefore are distinctly intertwined. Photography will continue to accompany humans and document their achievements and hopefully improve the state of humanity and the world we live in.

Dallal: Photographic masterpieces

International photographer and HIPA Board of Trustees member Henry Dallal said “It is with great honour that HIPA can host such a prestigious exhibition involving some of the finest photographic masterpieces ever created.

Cassio Vasconcellos – Aeroporto, Brazil ‘Aeroporto’ is the portrait of the connected world. This is an imaginary airport, built with hundreds of separate images captured by Vasconcellos while flying over Brazil.
