Photographer's Note

I visited Dubai in January 2003, and was able to explore some of the hinterland with some resident friends in a 4WD. The town of Hatta is about three hours from the city of Dubai, and boasts a tourist hotel and a heritage village with restored buildings, as well as mosques and rudimentary business premises. The mountains in the background are the rugged Al Hajar mountains, which straddle the border with Oman. I really liked the rocky, colourful countryside which contrasted markedly with the desert dunes (covered with other 4WD vehicles doing the usual middle class thing).
