Richard Allenby-Pratt: The Anthropocene

Gulf Photo Plus

13 Nov 201631 Jan 2017

The exhibition brings together several photographic series that Richard Allenby-Pratt has created during his 16 years’ exploration of the UAE. At the core of his visual representation of the local nature is the notion of Anthropocene – a recent designation to describe the geological Epoch of man. The landscape of the UAE that for a long time remained almost entirely in its ‘natural’ state, recently has undergone a dramatic change. With the arrival of oil wealth fueling an unprecedented economic boom, exponential development has left barely any corner of the country untouched.
