Exhibition of Listri’s works

A solo exhibition displaying the works of renowned Italian photographer Massimo Listri opened recently at Katara – the Cultural Village.
The exhibition features 25 photographs of the interiors of famous auditoriums, museums, libraries and palaces.
“What makes Massimo Listri unique is how he has made interiors look so absolutely vivid, as if they had a secret life of their own that only he knows how to portray. Listri has the extraordinary ability to capture all the small details that make the difference and reveal all the stories that remain hidden behind the surface,” according to a statement.
Katara general manager Dr Khalid bin Ibrahim al-Sulaiti and Italian ambassador Guido De Sanctis have paid a visit to the exhibition.
Speaking on the occasion, Listri said: “My focus, in these photographs, is on the metaphysical space of these buildings. Visitors can enjoy tranquility while visiting this exhibition.”
The exhibition is under way at Katara Gallery, building 22, until November 15.
