    Zoals ik het dacht en de fotograaf Nick Hannes is er 5 tot 6 x geweest tussen 2016 en 2018 als ik het goed heb. Ooit een reportage gezien over de zeer armoedige, zelfs ellendige omstandigheden van de arbeiders.
    Ik kijk ernaar uit om in dit boek te bladeren en te zien hoe zielloos hij
    Dubai voorstelt.
