Martin Parr Captures the Dubai World Cup and prints it with HP
HP Middle East partners with World recognized Magnum Photos agency and renowned photographer Martin Parr for his latest exhibition Martin Parr: Dubai, at The Third Line gallery. It is an exhibition of photographs which explore Dubai and its love for consumer culture.
On a recent trip to Dubai, Parr produced a series of works that capture shots of the city’s crème de la crème at the most fabulous events – the Dubai World Cup and the Cartier Polo World Cup.
The printing of this exhibition happened nearly instantaneously. With the help of HP, Martin and his team printed the images on a HP’s latest offering the HP Designjet Z3100, and then displayed the works within a 48-hour period, creating an almost live exhibition.
