Lamya Gargash’s latest series of work, Presence, is comprised of haunting photographs of the unwanted houses or structures in the UAE that have been semi-abandoned or face demolition.

AED 150.00 (incl. VAT)



It documents the culture that developed after the oil boom nearly thirty years ago – and the young generation’s abandonment or estrangement from these spaces: cultural extinction, an inevitable byproduct of modernity. Published by Page One Publishing and with the support of the Emirates Foundation on behalf of Works on Paper, the English and Arabic book includes an introduction by curator November Paynter and a conversation between Lamya Gargash and Fouad Elkhoury, celebrated Lebanese photographer and Arab Image Foundation co-founder
