Kuwaiti photographers to showcase work in exhibition

‘Wild Moments: Through the Lens of Kuwaiti Photographers’ will feature the works of Kuwaiti photographers.
Contemporary Art Platform (CAP) is hosting a photography exhibition series to showcase the work of Kuwaiti photographers.
“Wild Moments: Through the Lens of Kuwaiti Photographers” will feature the works of Kuwaiti photographers Mohammed Al-Kandari, Majed Al-Zaabi, Mohammed Khorshed and Maitham Al-Misry. It will be their first exhibition using fine art limited edition prints in Kuwait. The exhibition will open at 11 a.m. on Saturday and continue until Nov. 28.
According to CAP, the work of Kuwaiti photographers is brought together “to celebrate Mother Nature and the mesmerizing creatures of her animal kingdom.”
This exhibition’s four photographers have collected several awards and received international recognition from world-renowned competitions and organizations, such as the National Geographic, Al-Thani International Photography Contest, American Photography Federation, Hamdan bin Rashed Contest, Maria Luisa Contest in Spain and Austria Photography Contest.
The organizers said the photographs featured in the exhibition have been selected due to their stunning technical quality, inspiring subjects and artistic direction. Each of the photographs elevates its animal subject either by abstracting its form or by highlighting its personality.
