Artist Comentary of Work:
I shot Transcendentalism on some sandbanks that used to overlook the grand mosque in Abu Dhabi before they were built on. The scene is very evocative. In one sense it is modern orientalism but without any political statement. In another sense it is just the reality of the Gulf today, local Emirati men riding their horses with the back drop of sand and mosques. This is still their reality even if it does evoke a nostalgic feeling for yesteryear.
