In collaboration with the Embassy of Ecuador, Katara, the Cultural Village presents two photographic exhibitions, Galapágos Surreal Exhibition by Fernando Espinosa Chauvin, and Children of the Sacred Waterfall by Nicolas Kingman. The exhibitions are expected to run from 9 December until 5 January at Katara Galleries 1 and 2, Building 13.

Children of the Sacred Waterfall

The two exhibitions showcase a series of scenic photographs taken of the natural landscapes in Ecuador. Children of the Sacred Waterfall presents a collection of photographs by Ecuadorian photographer, Nicolas Kingman who demonstrates the support of the conservation process. The photographer’s technique displays an appreciation of local Ecuadorian scenery. The Galapágos Surreal Exhibition depicts the old sublime aesthetic of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The photographer Fernando Espinosa Chauvín illustrates the Galapágos Islands through a series of expeditions to the place. Chauvín’s creative use of technology creates a different structure of imagery that would be invisible to the naked eye.

Galapágos Surreal Exhibition

Dr Khalid Al Sulaiti, General Manager of Katara said:

The exhibitions promote artistic and cultural values ​​of Ecuador and their aim of protecting the environment and habitat of the people. The exhibitions further demonstrate Katara’s commitment to showcase different cultures whilst embracing the emerging global culture.”
