As part of the 'From End to End' exhibition curated by Sheikha Lateefa bint Maktoum, and Jassim Al Awadhi, Tashkeel has invited participating photographers Ola Allouz, Yagoub Al Hammadi, Maitha Bughanoum, Mona Al Tamimi, Mousa Al Raees and Faisal Al Rais to lead six guided photowalks of different sites around Dubai. These photowalks are informed by the photographers’ personal questions and interests, and experiment with the format of a typical tourist visit, unveiling the many hidden layers and stories of the different sites of Dubai and what they have to offer.

For this Tashkeel photowalk, photographer Ola Allouz will lead a three-hour visit to Al Aweer Central Fruit and Vegetable Market. Ola will use her experience in daily life photography to push the participants to be attentive to their surroundings, explore symmetry amidst what seems opposing to that and find stories in the details. Learn the techniques of colour photography and different lighting conditions all while exploring the liveliness and the variety of fruits and vegetables of the market.

This communal activity of photography enthusiasts will meet up at 7am at the main entrance of Al Aweer Central Fruits and Vegetable Market to walk around with a camera looking for stories that are intertwined with culture and history of this community.
