Dubai 2012

I wasn’t really sure what to expect of Dubai & its inhabitants as I had never visited an Arab country before but all I can say is I have seldom felt so secure & hadn’t expected such a liberal, modern culture.

My first trip to Dubai in 2012 had to be one of the most amazing experiences visiting a city to date. It is incredible, not only what has been built here in the past 50 years but at what speed, at what expense & at which standard of luxury. I only had a week to uncover some of the many sites of this desert city & I knew that I had my work cut out  but I couldn’t wait to get started.

 

 

Dubai 2016

My second trip was to be a more documentary approach to the areas of architecture & infrastructure but also more devoted to the humane element of this most fascinating multicultural metropolis.

I just had to return to that fast living, fast growing city on the Persian Gulf to experience what has happened in the past 4 years since my last visit. One development that was very apparent is the speedy growth of the population living & travelling throughout the city. Public transport is almost always overcrowded & the Sheikh Zayed Road has become more concentrated with traffic also.
