Issraa El-Kogali

A photographic collection of cultural icons aiming to associate images with northern Sudan instead of words. The photographer set out to build a collection of symbols and portraits that represent the Northern State known as "Alshamaliya" in its current day while honouring its ancient Nubian heritage. The exhibition includes portraiture, landscapes, ancient Nubian sites and modern Nubian architecture, as well as everyday objects that have come to be representative of the region and its cultures. The collection features photographs from Karima, Dongola, Wawa, Abri and Wadi Halfa as well as numerous other towns and villages.

Her work aims to introduce diverse positive images of Sudan into our collective visual memory; images of things from remembered past and of forgotten beauty or things of accidental poetic significance and everyday household items that tie the people of northern Sudan with the rest of the world.
