Entry Description

This series documents the traditional camel race in the Arab region. I said REAL because most of the modern camel races now use a robot instead of a human. This was shot in Sweihan dessert in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. It was very surprising to witness this traditional camel race with young riders for the first time as I was used to watching camel race with a robot as a rider.
