The visit will be guided by the artist, Khalid Al Mohannadi. He has been a Qatari Portrait Photographer for 10 years, his work is dark and thought-provoking. 


In his first solo exhibition, Khalid will be showcasing his series “Twilight”, which tells about men and women, their relationships with each other and themselves, in parallel to the struggle behind global societal gender roles. The exhibition of 15 photographs explores various themes, from psychological exploitation to reflection and self-purification. 


With one camera and two lenses, Khalid created scenes that exhibit the compliances of conservative environments versus his wild imagination. Using conservativism against itself, he raises awareness around the defects in society that prevent us from evolving passed what was written for us, as men and women. Photographs challenge the contemporary double standards between genders.


One of his striking photographs showcases a man with no face… enhancing the idea of a blank canvas, and an opportunity to rewrite how we treat each other and ourselves as men and women. 


“If we go back to basics, when there was just man and woman… How did they deal with each other before society grew and created constructs? They communicated, they built, and they had survival instincts to protect each other. So, what went wrong? Why do men and women harm each other emotionally and physically? Why do we do the things we do?” – Khalid Al Mohannadi


Khalid believes darkness lies within us all, and he aims to find solutions to suffering by raising awareness on human problems in the matrix of cultures, societies, and religions. 



“Twilight” by Khalid Mohannadi is not produced and showcased to offend his own culture or religion. It is to simply challenge global societal pressures, created boundaries and definitions placed amongst men and women to act and feel certain ways. The clothing used in this series is only representing the culture that the photographer himself comes from, as this series is personal to him; it is not to offend his culture. He has created this series from his own personal experiences of agony. It’s not about where you’re from, it’s about how we treat each other, and how we can be better, kinder, and more compassionate as men and women.
