Photography as a Visual Record: Past, Present, Future 

Published on the occasion of the UAE's 50th anniversary, 50U tells the story of the UAE in 50 portraits of people, plants and places. Acclaimed royal photographer Ramesh Shukla, who took some of the most iconic photographs of the union of the seven emirates in the 1970s, and contemporary photographer Charlie Koolhaas, who was commissioned to shoot a photo essay for 50U, discuss the role of photography as a visual record, especially in the context of this book which straddles past, present and future.
