Belgian photographer Nick Hannes’s series “Bread and Circuses” focuses on leisure and consumerism in one of the capitals of extravagant consumption — Dubai. “Dubai is not the kind of place where you can just walk into a hotel or a mall and start making photographs. If you do so, you will immediately be stopped by security personnel,” Hannes tells LensCulture. Instead, he took a slow documentary approach to pierce the the luxe life in what he calls the “parallel world” of Dubai.
