I'm an Interactive Creative in the intersection between creativity and technology. On my portfolio you can follow the creative process of my artwork and browse through my latest releases. Check it out! www.gorguis.com.
In mid 2012 I decided that I was going to start a new project. I'm calling the project 'Portraits of Dubai' and this is how the project works: From August going forward until the day I leave Dubai I am going to ask random people for their portraits. While I am taking their portraits I'm going to ask where they are from and to know a little bit about them.
However, I will not publish any of their names nor reveal their identity. This project is about showing the diversity of ethnic people all living in the melting pot of Dubai.
Before I take any portrait, I explain to them what this is all about and how their portraits will be used or not used.
My biggest motivation behind this project however is manly that I think human interaction is the best way to know yourself and to celebrate other human beings for what they are and it gives me an opportunity to engage and interact on a more relaxed way.
After deciding to do this I've come across many people from many parts of the world. Some of them living and working in Dubai, while some of them just passing through on their way to another destination. Some on vacation for a couple of days.
The portraits will be uploaded to my Photography Bog 'Full Format' on 500px at 'Portraits of Dubai' for public display.
