The Peninsula

DOHA: A photography exhibition with a unique concept will take place at The Torch Doha in which Bosco Menezes, a prolific photojournalist, will showcase a compilation of portraits, mainly of children expressing their support to Amir H H Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani and Qatar, during the blockade.

Marking one year from the start of the blockade, Qatar has witnessed an unprecedented support from its citizens, locals and expatriates alike. In recognition of this fact, coming from people of all background and ages, the photos are of children parading in the famous Ramadan car parade at Doha Corniche.

The unique element of this exhibition is that the photographer is pledged to give each of the photograph prints to the families of the children he captured at the Corniche once they attend the exhibition and identify themselves, said a statement.

With over 20 years of experience in the marketing and media field, Bosco is a communications professional with a keen eye on photography.
