The Gallery of Modern Art Andakulova in Dubai (UAE) has hosted the opening ceremony of the photo exhibition dedicated to the 25th anniversary of Independence Day of Uzbekistan.

The Consulate General of Uzbekistan in Dubai has organized this new artistic photo project titled "Uzbekistan through the lens of camera: the contours and variations". The photo exhibition is open to the public and will last until December 5 of this year.

Heads of accredited diplomatic corps in Dubai, representatives of social and political circles and prominent UAE cultural figures, as well as local media have attended the official opening ceremony.

The exhibition includes photos of three photographers from Uzbekistan – Saidazim Fazilov, Ernest Kurtveliev and Jahongir Karimov, artistic works of which contribute to the expansion of the world's public presentation about Uzbekistan with its rich and diverse cultural heritage and art.

By the artistic design, this exhibition consists of three thematic cycles - "Moments of beauty", "Treasures of the horizon" and "joy of everyday life".

At the end of the event, the participants have shared their views and assessments.

Sheikha Hind Al Qassimi, Member of the Government of the Emirate of Sharjah, known designer of the UAE, editor in chief of the Emirati magazine Velvet:

- Being a big fan of travel, I have heard much about Uzbekistan and its rich culture. My dream is to visit to Bukhara and Samarkand, enjoy amazing architecture, nature and variety of the landscape, meet the people, and, of course, try world-famous Uzbek pilaf.

Abdulvahid Khalil, Head of the visual arts of government institutions of culture and art of Dubai:

- This exhibition is unique for several reasons. The first is the talent and skill of the photographer in the ability to reveal the moment that gives the viewer a lot of positive and emotional feelings.

Through these photographs, I was able to see the rich architecture, a diverse and rich life of the Uzbek people, amazing and beautiful nature of Uzbekistan which is deservedly recognized as the pearl of not only Central Asia, but also around the world.

I had the good luck enough to visit this wonderful region a few years ago. I was very impressed by the beauty of Uzbekistan, enjoyed the hospitality of the Uzbek people. This is an amazing country with the world famous history, rich culture, diversity of nature and many other exciting and attractive features, as well as the impressive pace of modern development.

Muhammad Yusuf, the chief editor of a leading UAE newspaper Gulf Today:

- I am pleasantly surprised by the depth, diversity and richness of culture of Uzbekistan. At the exhibition the photographers tried to uncover the daily life of people in Uzbekistan, charming scenery, the people and the rich heritage of ancient culture and architecture of Uzbekistan.

This exhibition, in my opinion, will help to better understand and bring closer the cultures of the Middle East and Central Asian countries, especially Uzbekistan which are very close and have many similarities.

I am sure that thanks to the gallery UAE citizens will be able to get acquainted with the rich and diverse culture of your nation, its traditions and the modern appearance of Uzbekistan.
