Doors of Al Ain Alex Jeffries A tale of the times, the people and their heritage, Doors of Al Ain showcases the quaint doors of old villas photographed by Alex Jeffries over three years with the intention of preserving a tiny slice of Al Ain and the oasis city’s culture for posterity. Al Ain is largely untouched by the oil riches that have changed the landscape of other cities in the region; there are no skyscrapers or ten-lane highways. The tallest buildings across the skyline of Al Ain are the mosque minarets. Jeffries tells the tales whispered through the aging Al Ain architecture that is on the verge of extinction, and through his photographs, Doors of Al Ain becomes a beautiful time capsule of the oasis city and the UAE’s legacy. uKey Featuresu •Free detachable A2 poster •Stunning photographs capturing hidden gems and corners of a beautiful city •Insights into the historical, cultural and symbolic background of the doors of Al Ain. uAbout the Authoru British-born Alex Jeffries is a professional photographer who moved to the Emirates in 1991.
