Sami Nabeel & Martin Smith – Spirit of a Place
April 22nd – May 22nd, 2014
Opening reception Tuesday, April 22nd from 7pm-10pm
A Place has no spirit. It is man’s spirit that is mirrored in the places he inhabits and the monuments he erects. The Empty Quarter Gallery is proud to be the first to exhibit the travelling body of work of two documentary photographers, Sami Nabeel & Martin Smith. The study of man’s spiritual beliefs as reflected in their places of worship from Islamic to Christian religions to Buddhist philosophy is the preoccupation of both artists as they travel the globe capturing the spiritual essence of each edifice with their lens.
