Artist recreates city after humans have left.
British photographer Richard Allenby-Pratt has created images depicting a fictionally eerie, abandoned Dubai in which the skyscrapers and resorts are empty. Allenby-Pratt was hoping to accomplish with his photographs the thin line that animals and humans walk on and cross once in a while. Humans took over so much land, stealing it from the wildlife. Now it is time for the wildlife to take back the land.
Although it seems completely unrealistic, Allenby-Pratt explained that he wanted to capture the time as if the city was left by a majority of its citizens.
Another thing the photographer wants people to see in his work is just how vulnerable Dubai’s economy is.
