JUMEIRAH COMMUNITY the Gallery is rapidly achieving iconic status, and even took part in the world’s most prestigious photo fair – Paris Photo – in 2009 and 2010. Turn up at the Gallery now, and you’ll find an awe-inspiring collection of platinum prints, in an exhibition titled: ‘The Worst Journey in the World – Captain Scott’. Using only contemporary photography, the show traces the epic and tragic expedition of Robert Falcon Scott, who died attempting to become the first man to reach the South Pole, in 1913. “The show shows just how awe-inspiring the South Pole actually is”, says Elie. “It’s a place so wild, so inaccessible, and with such extreme weather, that no one country owns it, and it wasn’t even properly mapped until the 1960s. Here we have this group of incredibly brave men attempting the virtually impossible – and without any help from modern technology. If you come to see the show, it totally involves you in this story of exploration – as well as putting you in front of some breathtakingly beautiful photography.” “In fact’, continues Elie, “every show here at the Gallery always tells a story.
