Face of Asia Exhibition - A review

Name : Face of Asia _ A Photography Exhibition

Artist : Steve McCurry ( The photographer best known for the photograph ‘Afghan lady’ in the National Geographic magazine)

Where: Sharjah Art Museum, Sharjah.

We visited the exhibition yesterday. It was a treat to the eyes. Never imagined photography of day to day life and ordinary people can evoke such strong emotions. The exhibition mainly covered three countries - India , Afghanistan & Cambodia. The spirit of each country has been expressed superbly through the lens.
You need not be a photography enthusiast to enjoy this visual treat. It is a must see exhibition of all those of you living here.
