When British documentary photographer andMagnum Photosmember Olivia Arthur was commissioned to create a book project about Dubai, her visual journey began not with the city’s towering, mirrored structures and ocean-defying manmade islands, but with the story of a shipwreck.

Making a thoughtful, visual connection between Dubai’s past and its famously rapid, apparently unstoppable development, Arthur used a 1961 maritime disaster to begin a portfolio of images that looks at Dubai’s old Indian community and how their lives continue to impact on the futuristic emirate’s growing community. headtopics.com

This kind of unconventional photojournalistic approach is typical of Arthur. Known for her in-depth examinations of people and their personal and cultural identities, she explores the world via the prism of humanity and technology. Blending imagination and reality, she seeks to make you look and get you thinking.
