"It's all going so fast,"sighs Gerelkhuu , a 26 year old artist living in Ulaanbaatar. "We have to remember who we are and to be careful not to lose our soul.  If we don't know who we are, we don't know where we'll go."

As Mongolia is changing at a frantic pace and finding itself at the forefront of globalisation, its young urban generation is trying to keep up and figure out its identity.

Exhibition Description

I always liked landscapes, both the natural and the imaginary ones. I walk in the first ones with my body, and with my mind in the latter. But there are mountains and valleys in which we go through without knowing it. They are unpredictable, unstable and sometimes discouraging. In them we are but data, dots in a fictitious landscape not created by Nature but by human mind's abstraction.

Exhibition Description

The 'Call of the Wild' is a strong motivator for many of us to explore the world of mountains and remote regions. This series of images seeks to juxtapose the relative insignificance of those who seek out adventure against the overwhelming vastness of the wilderness environment in which they have been photographed.

Exhibition Description

Times Square, New York, attracts so many different people from all over the place. Why? this place gives me illusions or feelings that area has everything from everywhere - it feels like like everything is compressed into one small area; people, things, sounds, smell, foods, feelings, and all kind of activities that we could imagine. The difference between us merges all together making one big stream on the street. Everybody has their own concept of values and just doing their own things.

For the past 50 years our perception of the Palestinians has been shaped by conflict, violence, the intifada, the refugee camps and the Israeli occupation.  

The photographs in the series Palestinian Dream conjure up something completely different: a reality emerging in the context of the transformation of the Palestinian society.

Exhibition Description

Coming Soon is an exploration of our visual relationship with the branded city centers and the commercial environment we live in. In recent years, a kaleidoscopic net of huge billboards has enveloped the commercial hubs of New York City. The branding of the cityscape has become so ubiquitous, that the colorful, monumental advertisements, looming over the narrow streets, seem to be virtually unnoticed by the passersby. Giant billboards both dominate the urban landscape and blend into the background.
