Dubai is an architect's playground. Fanciful buildings dot the landscape in every direction. This complex of residences is known as the Executive Towers. What struck me about these buildings is that every one would be the centerpiece tower of an average American city and yet they didn't particularly stand out amid the other Dubai skyscrapers.

As the sun came up over the desert and streaked between the towers, the sky filled with a wispy haze of clouds. I was on the rooftop of a nearby building and exposed more than 100 photos to stitch together into this scene. When Dubai does something, it does so in an over-the-top fashion; so much so that every corner of the city is a cliché of tacky excess and architectural melodrama. To evoke a similar feel, I decided to wrap the photo into a semi-sphere.

VAST PRINTS

THE HIGHEST RESOLUTION PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINTS EVER CREATED

VAST Prints are fine art photographic paper prints that arrive ready to be mounted and/or framed. They are created using the sharpest photographic printer in commercial use: a very rare specialty printer that formerly printed currency and military surveillance imagery.  Learn more  

Every VAST Print has two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one affixed to the print and one standalone. Additionally, each print is assigned a unique serial number via a permanent hologram seal and recorded in our registry. Its provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital blockchain encryption technology.
