LAST CHANCE Jack Burlot: Time of Zayed

12 January

Free

Portraits of Sheikh Zayed and images of the UAE capital shot by the French photo-reporter Jack Burlot in 1974.

Burlot, then working for photojournalism agency Gamma, was sent to Abu Dhabi to cover the oil boom in the Middle East. He met Sheikh Zayed at a camel race and was lucky enough to receive authorisation to take pictures. The result: a touching and vibrant record of the very early years of the United Arab Emirates.

Jack Burlot will be at the show’s opening at 7.30pm on 28 November, with French Ambassador Ludovic Pouille.
