As a sideproject when traveling in Dubai, i started to copy photo’s of Thomas Meyer’s project: “The Resort”. I had printed some of his photo’s to take with me for inspiration and research as of what to expect, and the plan of taking the exact same photo’s came later during the trip. The hunt for the exact location was one of the most fun things i have done regarding to photography. Afterwards i emailed Sir Meyer and his response was: “this is realy amazing. Never had one who tried to restage my pictures, as far as I know. I´ll take it as a compliment.” www.thomas-meyer.com
It was fun, but i consider them Mr. Meyers photo’s and not mine at all. The photo’s i took are poor copy’s of something far more beautiful.
