I've been photographing the deserts of the UAE for over 5 years and in this time many of the locations I've visited have radically changed. Many of the trees and shrubs that once stood have their roots exposed to the sun or are buried by the ever changing windswept desert landscape. Unbearable summer heat mixed with almost freezing evening temperatures in the winter months, the consistent sandblasting strips the bark off the majority of young trees. These 'desert portraits' offer a glimpse in time of plant species fighting for survival in one of the worlds harshest environments.

Anthony incorporates a minimalistic approach within his photography and this simplicity shifts our perspective so the imagery is less about actual place and more about emotional state. In his photographs he uses negative space and an ethereal aesthetic to provide the viewer with a sense of serenity and calm, sharing the emotions of the moments he captures. “My wish is to offer different frames of reference that transport you to a place that is suspended between reality and surrealism"
