Henry Dallal’s photograph of the mangrove swamps north of Al Wakra was the subject of Conde Nast Traveler June 2012 issue’s contest, Where in the World? Henry took this photo hanging from the door of a helicopter on the way to photograph the Ras Laffan natural gas facilities in Qatar.
Diana Untermeyer’s handsomely illustrated book warms one’s heart with rich passages and beautiful photographs by Henry Dallal that elevate even commonplace Qatar life to poetry showing tradition blending with dynamic modernity.
Roger Mandle, Senior Advisor to the Chair of the Board of Trustees of Qatar Museums Authority
I congratulate you and Henry for such a beautiful production which captures the inspiring spirit of Qatar. Your book is authentically personal, intelligent and artistically sophisticated…
