Multi-creative Dubai resident Hind Mezaina shot these images on Fuji Velvia film with her beloved L-CA.
“This spot on Safa Road, which used to be a park called Al Khazzan Park, has one of my favourite landmarks in Dubai: a tall water tower built in the 1980s (I think).
The park disappeared ages ago and the whole spot was blocked off for the longest time. But the tower/tank was always visible from the road.
When driving by this spot I noticed a few open gaps in the fence, so it was easy to get up close. There was a sign for a demolition company on the open gate. I really have no idea what the plans for the plot are, but I hope and pray that the tower will remain untouched. It’s grown more beautiful over time, in my eyes anyway.”
