Six of my fiction photos have been put up here."

Hamad is also a photographer and a professional in Photoshop. He is in secondary school and is participating with 4 fiction photos. Mohamed Al Shamsi, the organiser of the exhibition said, "My brother and sisters are participating for the second time in the Arts Surprises week of DSS. Last year we participated with the Photographic Illusions Exhibition and there was a lot of good response from the viewers.

"Our family supports us emotionally and financially. We would like to thank every one who helped us with the exhibition starting with the Dubai Government, DSS office and DNRD. Their support and such events help the nationals to reveal and improve their talents," he added.
