28 Nights and A Poem, 2015
Founded in 1997, the Arab Image Foundation preserves the legacy and collection of photographer Hashem el Madani and the Sheherazade photo studio. This film offers a study of the photographer’s studio practice in the mid-20th Century and exploration of the essence of archives today. Alternating between the Foundation archive and staged interventions in the artist's current studio, the film is a meditation on image making and on age itself.
