Shortlisted for the Aperture-Paris Photo Photobook of the Year 2021, Hello Future is a culmination of Farah Al Qasimi’s (born 1991) photographic, performance and film practice, unified within her keen focus on surface and texture, and the revealing visual influences of the splashy and florid. Al Qasimi examines postcolonial structures of power, gender and aesthetics in the Persian Gulf states and global cultural confluence and migration at large.
