Six Pillars – East Wing Gallery, Dubai by 6pillars
At a time when photography as an artistic medium is undergoing continual changes and challenges, a new gallery in Dubai focuses specifically on the medium. Having expanded and strained under the onset of digital photography and the smart phone camera boom, the art form is now faced with the proliferation of the image, a flood of low-grade images in places once reserved for those of the highest quality amongst other challenges.
We speak to the director of East Wing, Elie Domit about his interest in and dedication to photography, and the show ‘Ramadam in Yemen‘, a series of one-off prints taken in the early 90s around the mountain villages of Yemen by Australian photographer Max Pam, decorated with diary notes scribbled on the sides of these very personal postcards.

Photographer Sara Shamsawari exhibits a selection from her series in City Hall entrance until January 4th.

6IIIs to Persia on Resonance104.4fm
Photographer Jamshid Bayrami shows his works in ‘Haj’, the opening exhibition at Xerxes Fine Arts Gallery in London, the only permanent gallery dedicated to Iranian art.
Bayrami has worked successfully as a photo journalist and is known for his picture of a bloodied hand print on a T-shirt during student protests that appeared on the front of The Economist magazine. Following three days of bloodshed at Tehran University in July 1999, the subject of the picture Ahmad Batebi was given a 13-year prison sentence. Bayrami’s work continues to be frank and sincere, yet has taken on some very subtle tones as he moves into the realm of art for this exhibition.
Here Fari Bradley talks to gallery owner and curator Ali Bagherzadeh, who is himself a collector, about the show and its pieces.
This show was originally broadcast from the Resonancefm studios on July 7th 2008
