People of Ras Al Khaimah

This beautiful book presents a fascinating record of Ras Al Khaimah and its people in their own words and accompanied by stunning photographs.

People of Ras Al Khaimah is an important book. This photography book documents the stories of the people who shaped Ras Al Khaimah’s great economic, political and social transformation in the second half of the twentieth century. The accounts here show what this transformation meant in human terms. In their own words and accompanied by over 100 stunning photographs, it features more than 50 portraits and oral histories of the Emiratis and immigrants who call the Emirate home. They came together to create a warm and welcoming society in the open spaces in the north of the United Arab Emirates.

Anna Zacharias and Jeff Topping spent three years talking to residents, teasing out their personal stories and photographing them at work and play in all their diverse backgrounds.
