Dubai. A place obsessed with prestigious image and associated with astonishing skylines; this project explores the reality behind the façade into the living conditions of the workers that transform this desert. They are exploited, subjected to barely acceptable living conditions with minimum pay, thousands of miles from home. They are the slaves of Dubai, slaves to the system and these photographs explore an over populated lifestyle which holds an isolating existence. With women restricted from entering the camps, the work represents the distance I experienced as a female photographer whilst observing the Labour Camps.
