The series is inspired by the beauty and tranquillity of the Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi. The mosque considered to be the key site for worship in the UAE and it design and construction 'unites the world', using artisans and materials from many different countries. My series focuses on the domes above the main prayer hall and the way they are illuminated by the sun.

About Photographer

Katherine Young is a fine art photographer currently based in London. Her interest in photography started at an early age however it has only been in the last four years that Katherine took her hobby more seriously. Katherine?s real passion is black-and-white photography as she feels that monochromatic images have a surreal and timeless quality which leaves a striking impact on the viewer. Without the distraction of colour, the photograph looks cleaner and reveals the very soul of the subject.
