Quick Overview:

A unique pictorial account of the history of Abu Dhabi through the lens of Royal Photographer Noor Ali Rashid.


This is a unique pictorial account that encapsulates Abu Dhabi's cultural heritage and swift progress. Taken with enviable informality, Noor Ali's photographs give an eyewitness account of the changes experienced by this remarkable emirate.

From the outset, Abu Dhabi: Life and Times fondly portrays times past, of the Bedu and the gradual impact of modern influences triggered by the discovery of oil. It explores the prelude to Abu Dhabi's development, the building of its infrastructure and the significant role played by HH Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan in shaping a nation. His preparation of the emirate, its progress and innovation, and the new generation of leaders are reviewed. Finally, a series of aerial photographs of Abu Dhabi spanning a period of thirty years vividly illustrate the pace of the city's development.
