Vantage Point Sharjah 4 (VPS4) is the fourth iteration of Sharjah Art Foundation’s (SAF) annual initiative, supporting the practice of photography within the GCC. The aim is to foster the development of local and regional photographers and to encourage their engagement with one another as well as the wider cultural communities in the Emirates and the GCC.
As in previous years, VPS4 started with an open call, inviting submissions of work focused on self-portraiture. A large number of applicants, with a variety of professional backgrounds, skill-sets and interests, responded to the call. Vantage Point Sharjah 4 presents a wide-ranging selection of photography that uniquely expands upon the thematic and speaks to the development of a vibrant community.
The exhibition will take place in the Building GH, SAF Art Spaces.
