I’ve never really seen that many photos of Qatar before, and if I have, they were nowhere near as beautiful as these shots by Lee Mawdsley. Lee was summoned by the Commercial Bank of Qatar to help document the beauty and mysterious, pure architectural style that it boasts. Among birds-eye shots of the city, that seems to be developing at an incredibly fast rate, are sunny, clean photographs of robed men and women wandering through marble corridors and walkways.
With stunning architecture and breathtaking references to the absurd amount of wealth to be found in that part of the world, Lee’s series has a narrative running through it that is at once engaging and as alien as you can get. Lee has also just completed a fantastic study of the infamous architecture of London’s Barbican which you can see here.
