Brief

"There is a strange-making in much of Dajani’s work, a way of making perfectly ordinary things seem quite strange and extraordinary. Such work leaves the viewer feeling touched, moved, disturbed - leaves him or her with a whole complex of emotions and desperately wanting to know more. Most of my wondering is about Dajani’s falcons. I have never seen stranger or more beautiful photographs of birds than his."

John Wood, Photographic historian, poet & editor

Born in England, Dajani spent his formative years moving between the Middle East and Europe, gaining an appreciation of different cultures and traditions.

A passion for art and music lead him to explore various outlets for creative expression, until he eventually settled on photography, gradually establishing himself and developing a distinctive style that resonates with truth and emotion.

While Dajani’s work is contemporary, he is a purist by heart, and combines intellectual depth with classical realism.

Constantly pursuing new projects, Dajani resides with his wife and their Arabian horses and Saluki dogs in the verdant countryside of Galicia, north-western Spain.
