My first impressions of Dubai were consumed with the spectacle of super tall buildings jutting out of the desert sands, however the lasting impression was the wonder of the desert, and its importance to the Emirati people.

Dubai may be home to the world’s most outrageous skyline but Dubai’s desert dunes and historical creek are where you’ll find the city’s heart. This video comes with the promise of vertigo but ultimately captures the unique energy of Dubai, a city where the warmth of its people tempers the steel of its awe inspiring structures… some of which we encounter up close.
A special thank you to Dubai Film for making this project possible and providing the extraordinary access I was granted to realise this story.
