Join us on Saturday, 11 June for a culturally immersive photowalk experience with Gulf Photo Plus and Toyota, celebrating the reinstallation of the widely-rememebered iconic signage on Dubai’s Toyota building!
Long-time Dubai residents will tell you that it’s a well-known landmark that was often used as a reference point long before travellers had Google Maps. A few years ago the sign was taken down, but remained in public memory as a cultural symbol of Dubai's urban growth since the early 1980's. This May, the sign was restored and remounted on the building by Toyota.This photowalk takes us on a cultural exploration of the wider neighborhood around the Toyota building, including Khazan Park and Mosque of Reflection, which tell a story about Dubai’s past that puts its urban development in context. Each photographer joining this photowalk will be given a free disposable camera to use throughout the session.
This event is open to photographers of all skill levels, and is free to attend; however, registration is required. Submissions are now closed. If you've submitted a form for registration, please await our team to contact you further for confirmation of attendance.
