From among nearly 2000 photographers hailing from more than 90 countries, a Omani woman photographer succeeded in winning a competition organized by the International Federation of Photography Art (FIAP).
Photographer Marwa Al Yarubi won a spot in the top ten slots of the international competition ‘stay at home’ organised by the FIAP. The Omani Association of Photography participated with a group of its Omani photographers in this competition.
Al Yarubi participated in a visual work that expresses the topic of the competition and the importance of taking necessary precautions to prevent Covid-19 pandemic. She said: “Through the photo, I wanted to express the current situation of the pandemic and the people’s keenness to wear masks while urging them at the same time to wear it to prevent the virus. I use the black and white technique to give aesthetics to the work through the light and shade present in this technology.”
Photographer Marwa Al Yarubi was honored on Saturday evening at an online ceremony held by FIAP.
