I recently had the privilege to take part in a five-day urban explorative workshop hosted by Tashkeel. Our group, comprising of eight or so female Emirati photographers/designers and myself, set out across Dubai to observe and identify apparent trends, symbols, and themes commonly found across the city. We contrasted between the old and new, while photographing our wanderings, sometimes even blindfolded. We concluded in theoretic discussion, raising ideas about the city based on our findings. Hope to share a recent glimpse of dubai with these pictures. Enjoy.
