This is Abu Dhabi like you have never seen it before. French photographer Isabelle Avenarius has taken photographs of key structures in the city and created a series of beautiful composite images that resemble Islamic geometric patterns. In limited editions of seven pieces each, priced at Dh5,600, the 12 artworks will be hung in the hotel’s long, light-bathed corridor, which overlooks the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque – a fitting place for them to make their debut.
