About Tariq Dajani

My art works have been widely exhibited and are included in several private art collections, including those of the Agha Khan, Bernard Arnault, the Hermes family and members of royal and ruling families in the Middle East and elsewhere.

In the past I developed my photographic craft during time in London, Stockholm and Dubai, working on both personal art projects for exhibition and for advertising and design agencies.

I now live on a rural, organic farm in Galicia, north-western Spain, with my wife, and our family of Arabian horses and Saluki dogs. I continue to pursue new art projects and to exhibit regularly. I also teach photography and photogravure printmaking (photo-etching) courses in my 100-year old farmhouse studio.
