“We are Working to Enhance Your Experience” looks at visual presence of economic migrant workers and the role photography plays in sacrificing labour.
Shot in Jumeirah Beach, Dubai, it concentrates on the building of investment apartments between 2015-18. Our gaze concentrates on the presence and obscured traces of migrant workers, their transportation and building sites that coexist with utopian advertising imagery. Reminding buyers and workers alike of the necessity of sacrifice for imagined leisure.
