'GLIMPSES of GHANA' It was a ten day journey that initially had had nothing to do with photography. The brief required that I film the Cocoa Bean and Shea Nut plantations in Ghana for the EXPO exhibition in Milan scheduled for the spring of 2015. Ten days were insufficient to accomplish everything and, from necessity, the Land Cruiser travelled fast while flashes of Ghana passed, one after the after, before my eyes. Practically all the following photographs are tantalising glimpses taken from the Land Cruiser’s window at a 640th. of a second with the ISO setting set on automatic. Whenever it was possible to stretch my legs I was greeted by people with hospitable smiles and who, in spite of the poverty surrounding them, always showed great generosity and, more importantly,   usually managed to find the courage to overcome their natural fear of an intruder’s camera lense.  

'GLIMPSES of GHANA'

It was a ten day journey that initially had had
nothing to do with photography.
The brief required that I film the Cocoa Bean and
Shea Nut plantations in Ghana for the

Ten days were insufficient to accomplish
everything and, from necessity, the Land Cruiser
travelled fast while flashes of Ghana passed,
one after the after, before my eyes.
Practically all the following photographs are
tantalising glimpses taken from the Land Cruiser’s
window at a 640th. of a second with the
ISO setting set on automatic.
Whenever it was possible to stretch my legs
I was greeted by people with hospitable smiles
and who, in spite of the poverty surrounding them,
always showed great generosity and, more importantly,  
usually managed to find the courage to overcome

'DOWNSIDE DUBAI' There are two sides to Dubai and one is slowly disappearing.  The problem is nothing happens slowly in Dubai.  The 180 photographs in this book were taken over a period of three years in which the face of the city changed at a frightening pace, acquiring its new appearance; one of cement monoliths, sparkling glass facades, intertwining overpasses and six lane highways.  This, the upside of the city, has grown relentlessly at the expense of an older culture that risks becoming seen as the city's downside.  All along the wharfs of the Creek and in the Souks which are crushed along its borders, people still carry on with a lifestyle that exists since long before the words 'Anno Domini' came into being.  Slowly but surely Dubai's Downside is being sucked into a way of life as alien to its being as the cement jungle surrounding it.  People who for centuries traded with dhows, bringing continents closer together, now risk finding themselves a mere additional attraction for tourists who come to ski and shop in the luxurious shopping malls that sprout like mushrooms throughout the city.  These photographs are a record of a people who bear little relationship to the brave new world surrounding them. They are a tribute to a way of life which deserves to be remembered; not in photograph albums or picture postcards, but with respect for an existence that in no way should be considered the downside of anywhere, but rather as the origin of the process that led to the city that proudly calls itself Dubai.  

'DOWNSIDE DUBAI'

There are two sides to Dubai and one is slowly disappearing. 

The problem is nothing happens slowly in Dubai. 

The 180 photographs in this book were taken over a period of three years

in which the face of the city changed at a frightening pace,

acquiring its new appearance; one of cement monoliths, sparkling glass facades,

intertwining overpasses and six lane highways. 

This, the upside of the city, has grown relentlessly at the expense of an older culture

that risks becoming seen as the city's downside. 

All along the wharfs of the Creek and in the Souks which are crushed along its borders,

people still carry on with a lifestyle that exists since long before the words 'Anno Domini' came into being. 

Slowly but surely Dubai's Downside is being sucked into a way of life

as alien to its being as the cement jungle surrounding it. 

People who for centuries traded with dhows, bringing continents closer together,

now risk finding themselves a mere additional attraction for tourists

who come to ski and shop in the luxurious shopping malls that sprout like mushrooms throughout the city. 

These photographs are a record of a people who bear little relationship to the brave new world surrounding them.

They are a tribute to a way of life which deserves to be remembered;

not in photograph albums or picture postcards, but with respect for an existence

that in no way should be considered the downside of anywhere,

but rather as the origin of the process that led to the city that proudly calls itself Dubai.
