Dubai: Behind the Scenes depicts a hot summer day in the low-income neighbourhood of Hor Al Anz in Dubai. The small alleyway shows the deteriorating nature of the buildings which contrasts the mental image one would have when thinking of ‘Dubai’. A worker whose Dubai is starkly different than that of tourists or architectural magazine viewers is strolling in the alleyway not thinking of how strange he looks in a city that is carefully portrayed in the media.
