Jalal Jamal Bin Thaneya is a photographer based in Dubai. His large format compositions capture industrial facilities and ghostly landscapes in the United Arab Emirates, exposing society’s all-encompassing reliance on oil and nature’s manipulation by human hands. His work has been included in group exhibitions at Sharjah Art Foundation, The Empty Quarter Gallery, Tashkeel, Dubai Photo and elsewhere. He is a participant of the 2018/19 Critical Practice Programme at Tashkeel in Dubai, which offers studio space, critique and support for production, culminating in a lecture and exhibition. Bin Thaneya’s practice is heavily influenced by a career in the Logistics sector. He is entirely self-taught.
