Project :: Doha 100 / by Mohammed Ismail

Hey guys, what is up!

I am so happy to announce the launch of a new photography project.

Doha is a young, rapidly growing and in many aspects, unique city. Its cultural lines and borders are still being defined. They are being defined by those who are leading the way in the world of academia, science, research, activism, art, writing and filmmaking.

For some of us, when we think of Doha, it is usually the towers in West Bay, the Torch in Aspire Zone, or the old market in Souq Waqif. However, it is not the architecture that defines a place, it is the people living in it.

With 'Doha 100', I hope to bring these figures - some more recognisable than others - to the forefront, by showing them in their environment - the place they are pushing forward culture in this city. This will be a unique insight into how these innovators work and how they are changing the lives of all those who live here.

By the end of the project, we will have assembled a detailed story of how this city is growing. In addition to learning about what these individuals are doing, we will also learn about the individuals themselves; what they like doing, where they like to go and what they would like to discover.

I can't wait to get started on this project and as always, I will update you along the way.
