Dubai Photo Exhibition took place from 16 – 19 March 2016 in Dubai, and was held in a 'temporary museum' purpose-built in the Dubai Design District (d3). The showcase combined the work of many of the most celebrated working photographers today, alongside the grand masters of the 20th century, cementing Dubai's vision of becoming a highly creative, connected and cultural city, in line with Dubai 2021 plan and Expo 2020.
Dubai Photo Exhibition has been created by the Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum International Photography Award (HIPA) to promote Dubai as a hub for local and international photography and to nurture photographic excellence through educational programs, events and workshops. Supported by the World Photography Organisation (WPO), Dubai Photo Exhibition provides a new cultural moment on the world's art calendar, while cultivating appreciation and fostering dialogue in the region.
