Young Saudi Lenses
21. 02. 2011
The culmination of four years of hard work and cooperation between Al Mohtaraf design house and a team of aspiring photographers, Young Saudi Lenses presents a new vision of Saudi Arabia as experienced by its youth and reflecting their dreams and aspirations.
The project has placed no limitations on submissions; any young man or woman with passion and a camera was welcome to participate. Photographers bear witness to their own interpretation of their country, some focusing their inquisitive cameras closer to a society in change, others on a vast country redefining its identity through natural and ecological variety.
The layout of the works avoids usual classification into stale subject groupings; instead mood, colour and form guide the reader seamlessly on a narrative journey through the collection, aiming to capture Saudi life at the moment the shutter clicks.
“It was time they looked at their country with a new perspective – their own”
