The Middle East’s longest-running photography event, GPP Photo Week 2018, returns to Dubai from Feb 7 – 12 at Alserkal Avenue. Now in its 14th year, GPP Photo Week brings together top photographers from around the world to teach, speak on, and exhibit photography. With 13 visiting photographers, 12 Sony PhotoFriday sessions, 20+ exhibitions, 31 workshops and seminars, and dozens of free events and activities throughout the week, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.



This year’s theme is “Shift Your Focus”, a call to attendees to change the way they approach their creative practice and the world around them through the lens of photography. And GPP Photo Week will help you do just that with this year’s program, featuring their most impressive lineup yet.


You can learn to unlock the emotional potential of your subjects with fine art photographer SARA LANDO in her Adventures in Expressive Portraiture workshop, discover your creative potential with HUGH KRETSCHMER during Conceptual Photography With a Twist, and master the art of post-processing with the one and only RC CONCEPCION
