I haven’t had much time to add to my series of before and after images of Dubai in the last couple of weeks, but yesterday I managed to get on a boat from Dubai Marina to look for an updated image of the Dubai skyline, based on a photograph I made in 2008.
I did manage to get to about the same place out in the sea and the changes to the Dubai skyline, as you can imagine, are pretty dramatic. Not only that there are many, many more buildings, there is a full new island (where the Bvlgari Hotel was built and which I have photographed some years ago).
I hope you’re enjoying this trip down memory lane (for those of you who’ve been here a while). There are quite a few more I am planning on shooting this winter.
