These photos show Dubai in a nutshell. You’ve seen the city’s futuristic and postcard-perfect skyline many times, perhaps, but you’ve never seen a photo that speaks volumes of contradictions that aren’t really hard to see.
At Jumeirah Beach, where these photos were taken, these camels and their master go for a walk along the beach, luring sunbathers and tourists for a short ride, in exchange of few dirhams.
The next time you heard about Dubai, don’t just visualize the towering skyscrapers, the super cars and all the superlatives that come with it, but remember these photos, too.
The legos. The camel.
