With the support of Dubai Culture and Arts Authority, this project was exhibited in a public space on panels, within the neighbourhood depicted in the photographs. I lived for 9 years in Community 366, within the District of Umm Suqeim 3, famous for being the location of Dubai’s iconic Burj Al Arab hotel tower. The small neighbourhood was composed of about 12 streets of concrete houses that were built in the late 70s to rehouse the Emirati fisherman who lived on the beach there. It seemed in the late 2000s that it would not be long before the houses were demolished. When they were built this area was a small outlying fishing village. By the time I started photographing there in 2008 it was hemmed in on all sides by beach tourists, 5 star hotels and executive villas.
