This collection of images have been taken over the last 15 years in Liam Farrell's time spent living and travelling throughout the Middle East region.
Capturing the people and the places, the mundane and the exceptional, the immense barren landscape and ancient details carved in stone, has given to Liam some appreciation of the layered history of the region through the places he has explored over this time.
The expressions of place and culture which totally contrasts from his own New Zealand background is what he was keen to capture in this collection. The way many of these communities and cities exist in places with thousands of years of history is fascinating, especially being able to touch and feel that history and its juxtaposition with our modern world.
As you look at these photographs, try to imagine the context they were taken in.
The sounds and smells of the cities, the vibrancy and chaos of the market places or the silence, heat and barrenness of the desert landscapes. This complex combination of elements that for me form the essence of all the Middle East, boil down to the enduring duality between chaos and simplicity.
