Dar Al Funoon Gallery cordially invites to an exhibition of works by Bader Al Bassam Pulse, Snap and Beyond.
Opening at 7pm on Monday 17th of October, 2011
Since the age of eight Bader has been drawn to painting and music. He studied piano and guitar at the Music Institute of Kuwait for five years. Time spent in the Nave provided an opportunity for travel. During his journeys he developed a passion for photographyand almost compulsively captured images of people in motion and static landscapes in natural light.
Included in this exhibition are works showing images captured of street scenes in Yemen, Cuba, Russia and Turkey. Recently he has been invited to demonstrate and teach his special techniques of photography in Issum, Germany and Sasneham in the Netherlands.
“Photography talks and it is a powerful tool” says Bader. “What we see is the moment when the eye freezes, but the pulse continues and the sequence of the images pulsates in ones mind interminable dialogues renewals and rediscovery”.
The artist expresses his gratitude to Sheikha Intissar Salem Ali Al Sabah for her ongoing encouragement for his work.
Exhibition will continue till Thursday 27th of October, 2011
Exhibition Hours: Sunday to Thursday : 10am-1pm and 4-8pm. Friday and Saturday by appointment only/
