Under the Patronage of HRH Princess Alia Bint Al Hussein, an entirely new body of work by acclaimed Jordanian photographer Tariq Dajani will be unveiled for the first time at Jacaranda Images on September 20, 2011.
The exhibition, ‘SAQR’, the Arabic word for falcon, consists of detailed studies of this magnificent bird of prey with its razor sharp, curved beak and deadly talons, piercing eyes and delicate plumage encasing its sleek body.
This series of limited edition fine art photographic prints is an artistic interpretation of the majestic beauty and splendor of the hunting falcon, presented in a studio setting or in front of dramatic skies.
“While the precise origins of falconry are lost in time, the keeping of falcons in the Middle East is as ancient as the emergence of its civilizations and goes back at least 4000 years” says Dajani. “As with my series on the Arabian horse, SAQR pays tribute to the traditions and heritage of our region”.
