Fruits of their labours – An exhibition of still images – 2020

Fruits of their labours

Fruits of their labours is a virtual exhibition of photographs which document aspects of the UAE date industry. To view images outside of the exhibition, please visit my “Fruits of their labours” gallery.

The date industry

I visited date farms across the UAE for this project, and found a stark contrast between the living and working conditions of date farm workers, and the more affluent face of a nation that enjoys the fruits of their labours. The images in this exhibition highlight that contrast.

To find out more about dates and the date industry, take a look at the Al Foah website.
