Msheireb Museums, the four revived historic heritage houses in the heart of Msheireb Downtown Doha, is hosting a photography exhibition in collaboration with Qatar Photographic Society titled “Reflections from Msheireb”. This community-led exhibition will take place at Mohammed Bin Jassim House starting from 20 March to highlight the amazing results of a series of photography workshops conducted in Msheireb Museums at an earlier time.  

The exhibition unveils Msheireb from the standpoint of photographers who come from different backgrounds and cultures, and who have all participated in the month-long workshop. Abdulla Al Naama, Public Programs Manager, said: “We pride ourselves in being a social history museum. We observe, document and encourage social development. In that sense, we are always happy to support national community initiatives that enrich the cultural dialogue.” “Collaborating with the Qatar Photographic Society to conduct these workshops and host an exhibit of the participants’ work is our way of nurturing local talent. We invite everyone to keep an eye on our calendar of events and activities, as we will always have more and more educational and exciting activities suitable for all ages,” he concluded.

Qatar Photographic Society is a non-profit organisation that aims to support photographers in Qatar, provide them with guidance, promote their work, enhance their skills, and raise their awareness on how to protect it and showcase it. The management of the society takes it upon their shoulder to offer workshops and photography courses for its members. Mr Abdulrahman Obaidan Fakhro, Vice President, said: “We wholeheartedly thank Msheireb Museums for their support. We have a shared vision and we do look forward for further collaborations, bringing more culturally enriching content to the people of Qatar.”

“The workshops were delivered and supervised by a suite of photography professionals, who are all experts in their own fields. They focused on photographic techniques that can be employed to highlight the past and modern Qatari architecture and design, an aspect that is perfectly captured by Msheireb Downtown Doha,” he added.
