Hazy summer night. Dubai, July 19. 2014
The relentless march of the #spectacle and the continued #Dubaization of #Cairo
A performance in 3-minutes. Baniyas Square #Dubai
“From its humble beginning as a refueling stop for travelers with no desire to linger in an inhospitable corner of the Arabian Peninsula, Dubai’s airport has recently overtaken Heathrow Airport in London as the world’s busiest international air travel hub. Just a decade ago, Dubai ranked as the 45th-largest international hub.”
Beneath a glitzy skyline, wooden boats ply Dubai Creek, the historic heart of a city that was transformed in little more than a generation from a tiny pearling and fishing port to a global trading hub.
