Succession (2019)

Succession explores the deep concern I have about my country’s uncertain political future. Working with archival material that primarily focuses on the first decade of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said’s rule, I look to the past, to rethink the meaning of national identity, history, memory, and loss. The book features a selection of photographs captured using an iPhone and then reworked to create a series of carefully cropped images arranged into a dream-like sequence. At a time of great change in the Middle East and the world at large, this view of Oman acts as a metaphor for wider global national and political instability and shows how uncertain the future is for us all.

This book has been commissioned by Ffotogallery on the occasion of the exhibition 'The Place I Call Home', curated by David Drake, for the British Council. The exhibition is touring the UK and the GCC.
