Event Description

The Empty Quarter Gallery in Dubai has teamed up with the Dutch Leiden University and Hes & De Graaf Publishers in Houten, the Netherlands, to present a unique exhibition revisiting the historical photographs published by Christiaan Snouck Hurgronje in 1889 as Bilder aus Mekka, one of the most important collections of early photographs of the holy city of the Islam. The original plates held by the Leiden University have been expertly rephotographed and reprinted as a portfolio of valuable platinum prints.

We are very proud to present an exhibition of the 20 platinum prints during the month of the Haj. The exhibition will be opened on November 9 and runs until December 6.
