p.1 #1 · Recent street work - Dubai


It's been a while since I've posted in here. Here are a few recent shots from day and night walkabouts in the Deira and Bur Dubai areas of Dubai. Ramadan + hot and humid by day and night - it's not particularly comfortable right now so I don't venture out much.

Wonderful set Phil. It's interesting to see "English" graffiti.

Always a treat, Phil.
I continue to love your processing, choice of subjects.
I wonder where some of these images would be overwhelming and chaotic in color but where the busy-ness is tamed by the BW conversions.
Might be interesting to see some color and BW side by side.

Thanks Douglas - there's one guy that's put a few phrases up in this area of Deira.

Thanks Ray. I was trying to stand back and shoot candidly, but the light on one guy meant I had to ask for a photo. Everyone's particularly relaxed during Ramadan

Thanks Scott. I always process in colour first and then take it a step onwards through to black and white. Some of these work OK in colour, but for consistency I tend to show as a set in B&W. But you're right, there is often a bit too much busy-ness in colour.

Very nice set Phil, the first time I have seen your work. The sense of place and community comes across well.

Phil, your pictures are always a special treat.
I like your selection of subjects and appreciate that you get out in that terrible heat.

Judging by your images there must be quite a few non-native people living and working in Dubai, a real melting pot. Kind of reminds me of New York.

Thanks juju - I have some environmental portraits and other stuff banging around here in the archives somewhere!

Thanks lazlo

The heat isn't actually that bad as it's generally dry heat - it's the humidity, when that ramps up, combined with the heat that's unpleasant. Ho hum - only another two months to go and then it should cool down!

The population of Dubai is mainly made up of South Asian immigrants and workers. It's always been a trading hub and melting pot, even more so nowadays with Emirates Airline growing rapidly and DXB becoming a large international hub.

As always this is a great set. I especially like #5. Those are some wild shoes.
