TV Culture in United Arab Emirates
Project info

This project documents television programs produced in United Arab Emirates, UAE. I had access to TV channels in the emirates of Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Sharjah. I was interested in the stark contrast between the futuristic design of the television studios and the traditional, conservative clothing worn by the TV presenters. I also wanted to show a key part of popular culture where conservative and contemporary aesthetics coexist. All this as a reflection of the need of the country to maintain its identity and traditions.
