ABOUT THE ARTIST
Roger Grasas is a photographer originally from Barcelona, Spain. Since the beginning of his career he has participated as a photographer in a variety of documentaries and cooperative projects for NGOs, including UNESCO. He has also worked as a teacher in the field of photography and co-founded the photo agency ‘Phototroupe Studio’. His work has been exhibited in various galleries around the world: Spain, France, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, among others. Roger's work is an extensive reflection about post-modernity presented in a travel-documentary format. All his photographs revolve around the contradictions and transformations that modernity and technology created in our surrounding spaces; and the way in which the human being is able to assimilate and project these confusing changes into his or her social habitat.
Artig Gallery is pleased to present ‘Inshallah’, a series of limited edition photographs, that portray the dichotomy of cultural traditions of Islam and the increasing modernity present in the Persian Gulf.

IN MY OWN WORDS
“My project is the result of the interest in existentialist theories and theoretical assumptions of postmodernism (the society of information, technology and entertainment). With a documentary style, my work often focus on the urban landscape and the imprint that man has on him."
