In MIDDLE BEAUTY photographer Ante Badzim explores the unified beauty of the Middle East and challenges preconceived notions of this mysterious part of the world.
Embarking on an adventure to the Middle East with somewhat clouded views of the region, this journey quickly evolved into one of great discovery.
Travelling from a 200-year-old village in the mountains of Oman to the endless ochre deserts in Jordan. This exploration captured the unspoken beauty of towns, cities and the people that freckle the desert plains all the way back to the mountain peaks.
Ante’s minimalist imagery intentionally creates space for reflection and to explore a region of immense beauty that deserves celebration.
