Jalal BinThaneya is a fine art photographer from the United Arab Emirates. His work explores the complex relationship between society and industrial landscapes, going beyond public view in order to reveal hidden mechanisms for which modern life is dependent upon.
In contrast to his early work he has shifted from derelict subjects towards industrial facades and landscapes.
As opposed to the decisive nature photography, his body of work is pre determined, where he contemplates the image before capturing it, utilizing large format 4X5 inch film and other larger format cameras. Capturing the depth of the images requires larger image areas in order to showcase the details that pull the mundane as well as elusive subjects together.
