‘Desert of Pharan/Adam’ is the first series of a project exploring the changes in Makkah and was the result of intense collaboration between Ahmed Mater and Robert Kluijver, the curator of Desert of Pharan in 2012. Through the medium of large scale photography, and a combination of wide-angle and closeup videos, Ahmed manages to simultaneously capture the personal and the collective levels of experience. ‘Desert of Pharan / Adam’ follows the complex movements of these millions through an elaborate ritual, conducted on an infrastructure defying the human scale of the pilgrimage.
