My first visit to the futuristic city of Dubai allowed me to appreciate its incredible architecture and inspired me to create a series of photographs featuring the skyscraper dominated skyline of Dubai Marina. Having tried different locations, eventually a boat cruise provided me with the right vantage point. I used subtle colour processing ? green, which is traditionally associated with Islam and yellow/brown, symbolising the heat of the desert. I also mirrored my photographs to create a sense of confusion that the heat can bring on hence the title of my series ?Mirage?.
