while talking to Arab News

The PPF organizers have a strong reason for shifting the exhibition from traditional art galleries to metro bus stations.

“Only the elite visits the art galleries and common people have no access to those places. Metro stations are frequented by people of all classes and social backgrounds, by about 1.3 million people a day,” said Faizan Adil, a participant of the exhibition while talking to Arab News.

 

With a footfall of over 20,000 individuals per day at this one station alone, the venue fulfills its purpose of exposing the average Pakistani to photo journalism and art.

“The masses in our country, such as those that travel by the Metro [bus] would never have the opportunity to experience art. This photo exhibition is meant for them. With a footfall of over 20,000 individuals per day at this one station alone, the venue fulfills its purpose of exposing the average Pakistani to photo journalism and art.”.
