a photo book - a manifesto

RESURRECTING BABYLON is an independently published book consisting of original photos and text, thematizing the contemporary city in the Gulf Regions.

After living and working in Bahrain and travelling the region, I produced photos and text portraying these places, which I believe reflect on the times we live in strongly and are products of global circumstances.

info: soft cover (190x270mm), 160 pages, language: English

all photos and text have been produced by the author between 2016 and 2020.

The project aims at asking the questions: What do cities look like in a globalized, digitalized world? And what are their driving forces?

Cities in the Gulf Region are a clear manifestation of this exact world, due to their explosive boom in the past 100 years. Focusing on Doha, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Bahrain and the Taj Mahal, this book aims at questioning accelerated development, public space, reality, authenticity and tradition.
