DESERT PORTRAITS 2015 - 2020
Anthony has been photographing the deserts of the UAE for over 5 years using a minimalist approach and in this time many of the locations he has visited have radically changed. Many of the trees and shrubs that once stood have their roots exposed to the sun or are buried by the ever changing windswept desert landscape. Unbearable summer heat mixed with almost freezing evening temperatures in the winter months and consistent sandblasting strips the bark off the majority of young trees. These 'desert portraits' offer a glimpse in time of plant species fighting for survival in one of the worlds harshest environments. A selection of images in this series has won two silver awards in TIFA 2020, ND Awards 2019 and PX3's Awards 2019. All of the photographs in this series are available as large format fine art prints.
