Raining Sand


Although Dubai is full of colour, with more than 200 nationalities, commited to promote intercultural understanding and exchange, it is the sand, the sea and the rich Arabic identity that stick with me this time.

Dubait invites us to review space, beyond and in its iconic skyscrapers and towers. In between old and new, past and future, the now is created, shaping a tomorrow of hope and prosperity. Dubai connects cultures and people. It holds the key to a new world.
