Julian Mullineux

F

or Mullineux the inspiration to create a photo series of Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque in Muscat was instant from his first visit; the immediate sense of beauty compelled him to return with his camera, and from this his Grand Mosque series was born. Through his photographic work, Mullineux wants to evoke in the viewer a feeling and place inaccessible to the intellect, with the accompanying deep sense of being in the ‘now’,

taking inspiration from existential philosophy, particularly aspects of being, space and time. Through his compositions of the magnificent spiritual building he aims to manifest the same transcendental feeling he experienced within the walls of the sacred space; where the challenges of every day existence were forgotten. julianmullineux.com info@julianmullineux.com
