Memories of Satwa

About the Book:

Now on the brink of gentrification and urban re-planning. Memories of Satwa is a photographic memoir of one of Dubai’s oldest and most popular neighbourhoods. Combined with photographs captured and compiled by photographer and long-time Dubai expat Jalal Abuthina, this book also features a historical introduction to the area by Professor Yasser El Sheshtawy of the Urban Research Lab, UAE University of Al Ain. "Memories of Satwa" includes rare images of residents and parts of Satwa that have been documented over the past decade, with some of the areas featured (such as parts of the Emirati neighbourhood of Al Shabia) now completely demolished. In May 2016, images from the book were featured on Becky Anderson's "Connecting the World" show on CNN international and since it's launch has received an overwhelming amount of positive reviews from several major news and art publications in the country such as The National and Harpers Bazaar Art Arabia to name a few.
