Youssef Nabil: Portraits, Self Portraits

A catalogue with an essay by
Rose Issa to accompany Egyptian photographer Youssef Nabil’s first exhibition in Dubai at the Third Line Gallery. Nabil, who lives between New York and Paris, trained with David LaChapelle
and Mario Testino. Over the
past 15 years he has taken photographic portraits of Louise Bourgeois, Andreas Gursky,
Zaha Hadid, Shirin Neshat,
David Lynch, Omar Sharif, Sting and Naguib Mahfouz among other names from the worlds of art, film, music and literature. He then meticulously hand-colours his photographs for a nostalgic, glamorous look, reminiscent of Hollywood studio portraits.

Third Line Gallery, Dubai, 2007
