Philippe Chancel: Desert Spirit
by Philippe Chancel
Publisher's Description
Between 2007 and 2009, photographer Philippe Chancel (born 1959) made several visits to the United Arab Emirates, and was astounded by the ubiquitous presence of bizarre artifice: the desert grows green, seawater is desalinated and new islands rise out of the sea. Moving from one air-conditioned space to another, from apartment to limousine, from limousine to shopping mall, from shopping mall to theme park, Chancel found irresistible images at every turn; in this volume he expounds the United Arab Emirates as the supreme expression of totalized consumerism.
