I visited Dubai just before Easter to see my brother. I have been there many times before and used to live there so am familiar with the country. I was hoping to collect more information for my veiling research and managed to glean quite a lot. It was impossible to take photographs of people in the street but several women doing crafts let me take their photos and I photographed lots of shops selling veils. I also managed to collect several postcards and images of veiled women. Also by reading the local newspaper I found more images and read the views of some of the local people. We also visited Al Ain museum, in a more remote part of the country, from where I collected more useful photographs.
