Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders) have been holding a photography exhibition here in Dubai titled To Inhabit. To Be. To Live.
The exhibition outlines the work of photographer Bruno Fert.
Featuring displays of refugees, migrants and the spaces they inhabit, Fert offers an insight into the relationship between ‘shelter’ and ‘home’. With each dwelling, we are given a glimpse into a character and a life, at a pivotal point in their journey.
October 28th is the last day to visit.
“To inhabit is something we all have in common. Whether we are nomads or settled, we all inhabit a home. The temporary shelters of migrants reflect their personalities, the same way our apartments and houses speak about us,” said Fert.
“It is with this common denominator that I want the public to relate, to put themselves in someone else’s place by observing where they live,” he added.
This project received the Marc de Lacharriere Prize from the French Academie des beaux-arts. The second part of this work “Intimite Temporaire” is currently being shown at the Institut de France.
