Dubai art gallery The Third Line is set to present a new solo exhibition by Emirati artist Farah Al Qasimi.

While the images underwent detailed set-ups, Qasimi's clever candid-shot style allows for a more relaxed outlook at the social issues plaguing women today including the absolute but at times false, belief in beauty products from coloured contact lenses to skin-whitening creams.
