Fusing traditions with futuristic visions, Dubai brims with exhilarating energy and cultural dynamism, which may be the reason why the city attracts newcomers and visitors from all over the world. Besides its myriad of music, cultures, food, and landscapes (think ultramodern architecture and vast, golden sandscapes), it is Dubai’s openness towards people that serves as a perfect playground for photographers looking to capture the beauty of its people. Emiratis, Pakistanis, Indians, travellers in transit… opportunities for street portraits are everywhere.
