Reportage: Abu Dhabi
A link to my book is here: Abu Dhabi neighbourhoods , and my art prints are now available at Yislamoo. Follow the link for my full Interview. I've also been interviewed by The National, and Friday Magazine, Gulf news.
Filling thirteen sketchbooks and many loose sheets, this is the work of a year spent drawing on the streets of Abu Dhabi. I concentrated on the older, tight knit neighbourhoods to the west of the city, all of which are undergoing great change and regeneration. The verb 'to draw' implies a communication and a pulling together, and I found that reportage drawing allowed me to become involved and able to record, and share the life of the community. I learnt a lot about the place, which would have been impossible if I'd used a camera. The work was presented as a book for my final Masters degree project, summer 2018.
