Photography in Aleppo

October 6th, 2009 · 1 Comment · Culture

As part of the British Council’s ongoing 75th birthday celebrations, a series of photography events are taking place in Aleppo.

There will be a lecture by the Senior Curator of Photography at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum. The V&A is one of London’s most prestigious museums. It was also the museum which donated some pieces for a landmark exhibition at Khan As’ad Pasha in Damascus last year.

There is also a photography competition called the Chain of Years. 75 amateur and professionals were invited to take part, and were each assigned an ‘age’. Their task was then to take a photo of a Syrian with that age. The winner will get a photography trip to the UK.

You can see the entries at the Carlton Hotel in Aleppo from 10-22 October from 4pm – 9pm.

The events in Aleppo follow other celebrations in Damascus earlier this year.
