JORDANIAN STREET ART PHOTOGRAPHY by ALEX SINCLAIR LACK
Jordan, the country of Petra, the Dead Sea, the magnificent Wadi Rum desert, and a whole load of incredible street art. Positioned betweened Syria, Saudi Arabia, Israel, and Iraq, Jordan's peaceful, multi-faith, tolerant culture continues to blow traditional perceptions of the Middle East out of the water.
Their street art is diverse and covers topics including feminism, censorship, religion, love, and well...robots.
Photographs will be on display from Monday 9th January until Sunday 5th of February with an open evening on the 25th of January, 6pm-9pm.
Jordan has a remarkable attitude to refugees. As the UK parliament debated whether they should let in a few hundred refugee children, Jordan opened its borders to hundreds of thousands. Jordan has let in between 700,000 to 1.5 million Syrian refugees despite an incredibly severe water shortage. 35% of all photo profits will be donated to aptART (Awareness through art and prevention - http://www.aptart.org/) an art-based charity, working to improve the lives of Syrian youths inside Jordanian camps.
