CMES Annual Photography Exhibit

CMES Annual Photography Exhibit

For the past thirty years, the UA Center for Middle Eastern Studies (CMES) has organized and hosted an annual photography exhibit featuring images from the Middle East and North Africa taken by CMES friends, faculty, students, colleagues, local community members, and citizens of the world. Selected photos are enlarged, mounted, and displayed in the Center and remain on display throughout the year. This year CMES will also celebrate the new exhibit with an opening reception in late Spring 2022. Images may also be published on our website, social media, and selected for CMES advertising and promotional purposes.


For the 31st annual exhibit “Revival and Renewal,” CMES seeks images that reflect transitional movements of change in Middle Eastern & North African societies. How, for example, have communities, cultures, and ecosystems evolved or transformed in the face of historic change? The “Revival and Renewal” exhibit is open to a wide variety of photogenic themes and subjects: people, celebrations, nature, animals and wildlife, art and architecture, and all creative expressions that you might consider. Things that give you hope!
