SEF 2022 Draws Focus on the Crucial Role of Photography in Documenting Modern Architecture

Emirati multidisciplinary creative, Hussain AlMoosawi talks about how he began documenting the UAE’s architectural heritage
Sharjah, 19 December 2022
“There is a duality between the facade of a building and its interiors. I document only the facades. I look for density. I like to show how people impact, use and shape buildings,” said Emirati multidisciplinary creative, Hussain Al Moosawi, while speaking at ‘The role of Photography in Documenting Modern Architecture’ session, during the recently concluded Sharjah Entrepreneurial Festival (SEF) 2022.
Acting Editorial in Chief of National Geographic Al Arabiya Magazine, AlMoosawi, told crowds gathered at the open-air Creative Stage amphitheater how he began taking pictures in his childhood. “For me photography wasn’t a goal. I was simply obsessed, beyond crazy, about it. And when I finally bought my first camera, I could not afford to buy the lens!” However, it was not until he was 21 years old, living in Melbourne, that AlMoosawi actively began photographing the urban context.
One of his personal favourites is the façade of Dubai World Trade Center AlMoosawi clicked three years ago. “It shows the relation between open spaces and density. Now the World Trade Centre seems as though it out of place in that location but it has so many elements that make it iconic – it has both modern and traditional elements, infact the building strategically straddles the old and new Dubai.”
Attributing his success to the varied opportunities that came his way, AlMoosawi advised beginners and photography enthusiasts to learn all of the techniques of photography but to put some thought into what they are interested in clicking. “Think, what is your message, then you will make the most of the camera. It all begins with knowing your purpose and then telling that story. What I document reflects what my interests are. Those who take pictures of nature, a big part of them want to conserve nature.”
With five dedicated stages for entrepreneurs and artists to showcase their passion, SEF 2022 hosted over 150 inspirational speakers, more than 30 engaging workshops. Proceeds from this year’s extravaganza will be donated to The Big Heart Foundation, a UAE-based nonprofit that provides health, education and emergency aid to more than 4.5 million refugees in over 29 countries.
