Middle East Now, in collaborazione con MAD, presenta in anteprima il lavoro del giovane fotografo marocchino Tabit Rida, 25 anni, uno dei talenti emergenti della fotografia dal Middle East. Fotografo autodidatta, Rida è sceso in strada per documentare la sua città natale, Marrakech, in questo momento storico senza precedenti. Mentre l’industria del turismo, principale fonte di reddito per la città, è stata pesantemente colpita dalla pandemia, Rida ha colto l’occasione per fotografare i numerosi cambiamenti e osservare la realtà spesso trascurata di Marrakech, al di là del turismo e della folla. Questo progetto, tra immagini fisse e video registrati col suo smartphone, rivela incontri di vita quotidiana in tempi di quiete, ricorda che il tempo non si è davvero fermato, e che la resistenza umana è un fenomeno naturale.

Mercoledì 29 settembre – ore 18:00  Talk con Tabit Rida, Roï Saade, Roberto Ruta e Valentina Gensini. Introduce l’Assessore Tommaso Sacchi

Progetto e mostra a cura del fotografo e artista libanese Roï Saade. Coordinamento set design di Archivio Personale.

After graduating with a master degree in Economics and Social sciences in 2020, he started using the medium of photography as a tool... research to deal with social and economic issues.
