It’s all about photographic art

sfeer 1.1

Till the 30th of June, in the gallery of the Omani Society for Fine Arts in Salalah, where also the Photographic Society is based, different photographic themes captured by 34 Omani photographers are on display. During the inauguration on the 19th of June adults who attended a workshop on basic photography received their diplomas.

For the fifth year in a row the exhibition ‘Glowing Spectra ’ shows the visitors the artistic trends in the photographic art of the participants.  In the Omani scenery, in the portraits, in the creative and in the conceptual photographs the play with forms and light astonish. In some works the brilliance catches my eye, invited me to look closer. At that moment my communication with the work started.

Yasser Nassir Al Farsi (AFIAP) wants to keep the heritage alive. Fishing in the old traditional way is such a theme.  In his work he wants to highlight the fact that only a few people were busy with catching the abundance of fish. His point of view and his perception guides the visitor through the whole scenery of the action as showed in the picture.

The sunset and the movements of the clouds inspired Mohammed Awadh Alhadi (AFIAP) for this picture.  With the landscape and the picture of the woman (his daughter) he made a composition. The photo of his daughter was studio work.

Discussions about photographic art are still going on. In the catalog of the exhibition Mr. Ahmed Abdullah Al Busaidi, Acting Director of the Photographic Society, makes it very clear: ‘Glowing Spectra speaks to the soul and the eyes with the beauty it holds.’
