GPP Limited: Art For Everyone
Gulf Photo Plus have announced their new initiative 'GPP Limited', which will provide a platform for both emerging and established photographers to present their work to the public, making it available for purchase in the form of affordable limited edition prints.
With two central goals, the initiative aims to help promote and encourage the work of talented photographers within the region and abroad, as well as provide the public with access to unique, high quality prints. Inspired by the lack of reasonably priced high quality photography available within the UAE, 'GPP Limited' has been designed with a modest price point in mind. In striking a perfect balance, the carefully selected images span a variety of genres, featuring unique perspectives, intriguing themes and beautiful abstractions, all falling between AED 375 to AED 2500.
GPP Limited is set to launch on 6 June with an opening evening event at the Gulf Photo Plus space in Alserkal Avenue at 7pm. The initial line-up of participating artists includes local and regionally based photographers Ali Alriffai, Katarina Premfors, Sara Naim and extends to include internationally renowned, world-class photographers such as Gregory Heisler, Steve Simon and Martin Prihoda.
The limited editions will be accompanied with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by the photographer verifying the edition number and authenticity of the print. The prints will be made using high quality archival fine art paper made to last a lifetime with acid-free, 100% cotton rag paper. Framing options will also be made available with prices ranging from AED 195 for small frames up to AED 375 for the extra large frames.
In addition to the physical exhibition in the GPP Gallery, all of the featured images will be accessible for viewing and purchase online at www.gulfphotoplus.com/limited. Every quarter an additional set of images will be added to the collection, allowing an infusion of fresh and inspiring work from new photographers through out the year.
GPP Limited will complement the organization’s existing initiatives, which offer several events and avenues by which photographers and the community can connect through talks, films, exhibitions, presentations and workshops. Together these endeavors aim to encourage photography as a medium of creative expression, generating awareness and inspiring ideas that reach beyond the boundaries of languages, distance, and time.
Gulf Photo Plus is a photography organization whose aim is to nurture and develop the photography community here in the UAE and within the region.
