Through the Palm

This is a project shot between the Atlantis Resort on the Palm Jumeirah and the Marina in Dubai. Having never visited Dubai before I had unclear ideas on the rules and laws. Staying on the resort didn’t feel at all how I imagined Dubai culture to be, it felt like it was much more lenient towards the western lifestyle. Being only a short trip of three days, on the third, I headed through the palm towards Dubai Marina. Being the first time away from the resort I started to build ideas in my head, my westerner’s naivety kicked in. After spending a day there I realised it was far from the misleading ideas I’d built up from western ideologies. Through the images I wanted to show the rich colourful culture I came to find.
