Come Hear Me Speak & Present My Photo Series At Slidefest #15 in Dubai!
On Wednesday, February 18 at 7 PM, I’ll be presenting my photo series Sport, Ritual & Performance in the Middle East & South Asia with Gulf Photo Plus at Dubai Knowledge Village Auditorium.
I’ll be speaking about my research on the interplay between athletics and performance in the region as well as the birth of this ongoing series from several articles I’ve penned for VICE, Slate, Salon, Roads & Kingdoms, and other outlets.
Some of the photographs include my time documenting the misunderstood sport and training methodology of Mallakhamb in Maharashtra, India; the struggling national gymnastics program in Sana’a, Yemen; and the thriving Pehlwani/Kushti wrestling matches of the South Asian diaspora in Dubai, UAE.
If you’re in Dubai on Wednesday or fancy heading in that direction, I’d love to see you there. You can click on the invitation below for a full description of the event.
