In only 20 years, Dubai has changed from a desert city into one of the most gorgeous cities in the world. It is the home of numerous skyscrapers and more and more skyscrapers are being added every day. The tallest building in the world also resides here. The Dubai cityscape is often chosen by photographers as a subject due to its quickly growing array of skyscrapers. The city has become one of the most stunning destinations in the world since it has leapt to the sky.
Jens Fersterra is a talented cityscape photographer based in Germany, who has shot amazing pictures of cityscapes in Shanghai, Berlin and many other places. He also shot a magnificent series of photographs of the Dubai cityscape using his unique eye and perspective. In this series, Fersterra captures pictures of the buildings, city lights and the various architectures of the skyline in Dubai.
Fersterra’s ability to capture the essence of a city and view it from unique angles is evident in these pictures. The photographs instill a desire in all of us to see the magnificent Dubai cityscape by our own eyes and walk amongst the huge buildings personally. Fersterra doesn’t only takes pictures of the city from a distance, but also shows us the breathtaking view awaiting us when we see through the buildings or gaze up to them. Fersterra’s pictures show the city’s weird, alien beauty. And we are not exaggerating when we say “alien”. His pictures almost make the city look like a fictional place in a sci-fi movie.
