Border-lines, Jaber Al Azmeh

Installation view at Green Art Gallery, Dubai, 2016

At first, and in a manner driven purely by aesthetics, Jaber Al Azmeh photographed tyre tracks in the sand during his travels in the Qatari desert.

A nature lover, he had been photographing the landscapes of Syria in an abstract manner, with a view to publishing them in a book.
