Another year, another GPP Photo Week! We’re closed today and tomorrow (Feb 13th & 14th). The six epic days of #GPP2018 have come and gone, and we would like to thank our instructors, our participants, our crew, @cadillacarabia, @alserkalavenue, our partners, and you for making this memorable event possible. We’re taking a much-deserved break after an exhilarating six days, and we’ll be back in the office on Thu, Feb 15th. See you then!
Chebmoha, our interviewee for “Profiling Photographers” in October 2017, was recently featured on @instagram’s feed! Learn more about him on our blog, or visit his profile. #Repost from @instagram: Photo by @chebmoha Twenty-five-year-old Cheb Moha (@chebmoha) was born in Iraq, raised in Libya and Canada, then couch-surfed his way across Europe and the Middle East. He’s settled (for a moment) in the United Arab Emirates. “I have never encountered a place that was boring to me,” says Moha, whose first photos were made with an old film camera and a roll of expired film. “The pictures were really bad,” he admits. But he’d found a way of connecting with people around the world. “It’s a very intimate thing to ask someone, ‘Can I take your picture?’ It created a lot of friendships, a lot of relationships and opportunities.” From those opportunities, he’s built a career as a stylist, art director and photographer, with his images now hanging on gallery walls at GPP Photo Week, the Dubai-based photo festival organized by @gulfphotoplus. “I’m peeling back the layers of where I am and going beyond the confines of how things are usually seen,” he says.
