2018 – 2020: Senior Photography Specialist with Qatar Museums
My role involved working alongside the Acquisitions and Collections Management teams at Qatar Museums for the purpose of cataloguing and supervising its vast photography collection with a focus on the 19th and 20th century.
In 2015, I had the chance to visit the Museum of Islamic Arts in Doha and was truly impressed by the building’s graceful design as well as its exhibits, including the “Qajar Women: Images of women in 19th century Iran” exhibition. Three years later, my dream of working for Qatar Museums became a reality when I was hired to curate one of the world’s most fascinating photography collections, alongside fellow specialist Mary Pelletier.
Qatar Museums oversees the Museum of Islamic Art, Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art, National Museum, Doha Fire Station, QM Gallery at Katara, MIA Park and the archeological projects throughout Qatar.
