Showcasing a collection of images, ranging from sweeping landscapes and amazing architecture to powerful portraits and the more conventional, ‘Collective Visions’ will surely have you forgetting about that Instagram feed. What’s more, it’s really easy for visitors to lose themselves in all kinds of different worlds with all the thought-stimulating and visually fascinating snaps, with many by award-winning photographers.

The group photographic exhibition, which is taking place in Dubai’s DIFC’s Central Park Towers until November 4, features images taken by members of the Dubai Chapter of The Royal Photographic Society (RPS). A UK-based organisation with international reach, RPS exists to promote photography and unique imagery around the world, as well as to support photographers in realising their potential. Over 30 photography enthusiasts from Shutter Bugs Creative Forum, a mentorship programme, will also be exhibiting their works. The collection gives the public, art collectors and designers the opportunity to view over 80 photographs from 30-plus award winning artists as they roam around The Cube, the venue’s new multi-functional event and exhibition space.

"This exhibition is intended to provide an opportunity for The RPS members in this region to showcase their works. This is the first of a series planned. The team at the Dubai Chapter have worked hard to put up this show and we hope that it enhances the overall experience of each member apart from improving the visibility of The RPS in this region,” Mohammed Arfan Asif, the Curator and Chapter Organiser, said. “We appreciate the support from Central Park Towers and thank them for co-hosting 'Collective Visions.’"
The show was initiated on October 24, with notable people like the honourable Yasser Al Gergawi, the UAE’s Director of Cultural Events, Ministry of Culture and Knowledge Development, attending. Ramesh Shukla, the famous royal photographer, also made an appearance.
