BurgerRebel to exhibit international photographer's Middle East collection

Dubai, UAE, 12 May, 2013: Known for serving ‘revolutionary' burgers and hotdogs, BurgerRebel - Dubai's popular lifestyle eatery - will be showcasing a collection of photographs by international photographer Kevin J. Larkin from 18 May.

The collection on display is titled ‘Wanderings' and is a culmination of Larkin's own meanderings through the Middle East.

“Over the past five years I have been driven to capture the beauty in both the extraordinary and the ordinary scenes of the Middle East, within my images,” said Larkin.

'The images on display are my attempt at showing the similarities between the various cultures of the Middle East, to other cultures around the world, whilst simultaneously showcasing the unique beauty of the wonderful places I visited.'

Larkin, a US national based in Dubai, has been creating photographs since he was a child growing up in Hawaii. A graduate of Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at Arizona State University, Larkin has been working in photojournalism for the past 25 years.

“We decided to host the exhibition because of our ongoing commitment to the local community, and we want our walls to be accessible to a variety of artists and photographers to express themselves creatively,” said Radwan Hijazi, Restaurant Manager of BurgerRebel.

“We are definitely hoping to introduce more exhibitions in the future, and look forward to showcasing a host of work from various artists and photographers in the region.” 

Larkin's work has been published in Time, Newsweek, Sports Illustrated, Paris Match and various newspapers around the world. As a photo editor at The New York Times, he was a member of the two photographic teams that won Pulitzer Prizes for the paper's coverage of the attacks on New York City on September 11, 2001, and for their coverage of the start of the war in Afghanistan.

Larkin moved to the UAE in 2008 to join The National newspaper, and has since gone on to establish his own photography business in Dubai.

His work will be on display at BurgerRebel, located in Wafi Mall, from 18 May until 18 July, 2013. For further details or reservations, please contact BurgerRebel on 04 324 4252.
