Biographical/Historical note

The primary aim of Akkasah, the Center for Photography at New York University Abu Dhabi is to explore the histories and contemporary practices of photography in the Middle East and North Africa, and to establish a major hub for scholarly research on photography in the region. The Middle East and North Africa have rich traditions of documentary, vernacular, and art photography and these traditions have yet to receive the full critical attention they deserve. Akkasah investigates these histories and practices in dialogue with other photographic cultures and traditions from around the world.
