MEN AT WORK

The Gulf is a region that has attracted millions of migrant workers from all over the world, primarily from Asia and Africa. MEN AT WORK shows the the daily life of the working man; whether he is a nomad and has travelled from afar to trade goods, a migrant worker who seeks better opportunities in foreign land or being a local fisherman.

With this project I want to give a photographic portrait of this region and its constant changing culture due to its influx of people, who bring a bit of their own cultural backgrounds with them and merge it with the existence ones. By showing a different side to the richer oil nations of the Gulf, I also hope to challenge the general idea of a man in the Gulf.
