The 6th edition of the Image Festival Amman – April 1st to 30th is consecrated to Identity.
Since the beginning of time and until this moment of our civilization, people have always celebrated their distinguished characteristics and differences on social, national and cultural levels which played a major role in creating the concept of identity.
Slowly and gradually, each identity has started contributing to the idea of self-awareness of the cultural and social aspects, and developing various nations. Identity grants people a sense of uniqueness and singularity; through the means of culture, language, faith, heritage and history. At the same time, it pushes people to communicate and reach out to each other within and outside their societies.
Through social and personal documentation, photographers from all around the world reflect Identity from different aspects of life like distinction, objection, integration or conflict and other ideas that tackle the theme of the 2017 Amman Image Festival.
