Coinciding with the Louvre Abu Dhabi’s exhibition Photographs: An Early Album of the World, a two-day photography masterclass is now being offered to the capital’s visitors and residents.

Hosted by the world-famous museum in collaboration with the Manarat Al Saadiyat (MAS) Photography Studio, the first day will take place at Louvre, where participants will discover pre-digital photographic techniques, and build a simple pinhole camera to experiment with composition, space and light.

The classes will run from 3pm to 6pm each day, and it costs Dhs168 per person.
