For most Westerners the Middle East sounds a depressing place: conflict, war, civil war and more war, but there is an alternative view now on show in London.
Light From the Middle East: New Photographyis the name of an exhibition currently on show at the Victoria & Albert Museum in Central London. Although it opened on November 13, it has received precious little coverage, but on Saturday it was reviewed byThe News Line, a publication more noted for class war than classy pictures.
The exhibition is running until April 3 next year at the Museum's Porter Gallery, and judging by some of the featured photographs, is worth a peak, although it does not appear to be entirely war-free. There is extended opening until 10pm Friday nights, and best of all it is free.
