‘Humans of Dubai’ captures the city’s residents in a new light

In a city of such diverse cultures, one UAE photographer SK Sohaib Athfaan set out to capture life in Dubai in a series of snaps posted to his Instagram.

“Dubai is such a busy place, one hardly gets time to reach out to people, let alone hear their stories and get a glimpse into moments of their lives,” Athfaan told Stepfeed.

“I aim to capture a smile, a tear hidden in someone’s eyes, or a surprising moment, and I believe that every photo I take is a part of the subject’s life, a part of the person himself.”

Check out some of his beautiful portraits:
