Farah Al Qasimi
January 29, 2020 -

Using techniques borrowed from documentary photography and Renaissance painting, photographer Farah Al Qasimi creates images that tell richly textured stories—usually ones about gender, class, and nationality. This month, the artist, who earned her MFA from the Yale School of Art and lives between New York and Dubai, presents a new body of work that focuses on singular, fleeting moments of beauty. One hundred bus shelters throughout all five boroughs will double as frames for the photographs, thanks to the Public Art Fund’s ongoing partnership with the advertising firm JCDecaux.
