Polish photographer Irenaeus Herok, has made the desert of the United Arab Emirates his new playground. More than a stretch of sand, this desert is full of treasures for photographers, if they’re not afraid of heights.
A football field in the middle of the desert, camels resting, highways swallowed by the sand … Irenaeus Herok masters the art of transforming random scenes into spectacular pictures.
With his drone, this Polish commercial photographer, specialized in landscape and architectural photography, travels through the desert of the United Arab Emirates in search of a unique moment of beauty to snap. Far from the classic techniques of photography, his aerial views allowed him to acquire his own style.
His 37,000 Instagram followers know it: in order to witness the beauty of the Emirati desert, you must break the conventional art of photography. Between land and sky, Irenaeus Herok found a new purpose for travel photography and offered a new vision of the Arabian desert.
Far from “bling-bling” skyscrapers and shopping centers, Herok’s photographs allows us to see a nature that often takes its rights in the UAE. What if this was the real wealth of Dubai?
