The exhibition was introduced by Saudi poet Saleh Al-Shadi and attended by renowned Saudi photographers Khaled Khidr, Eisa Al-Angawi, and Saud Mahjoub, among others.
The inauguration of the exhibition was held at the Saudi Arabian Society for Culture and Arts (SASCA), a civil society institution established in 1973 and headquartered in Riyadh, and with 16 branches scattered across the Kingdom to date.
The exhibition includes photographs by a new generation of image-makers, including Yomn Almonia, a Saudi photographer whose work beautifully explores the beauty of Arabian horses and the desert.
“Deserts have always fascinated me, and I am sharing some the photos of my trip to the Empty Quarter, where I was able to capture beautiful shots,” she told Arab News.
Commenting on the event to Arab News is Omar Al-Nahdi, the director of the society’s photography committee and winner of the Colors of Saudi Arabia competition in 2018, said, “Photography has become an important artistic and recreational practice in Saudi Arabia. With this exhibition, we show the breadth of photography practiced in the Kingdom.”
