How do we deal with a world where the climate is changing rapidly? How do we shape the planet and adapt it to our wishes? People and environment. These were the questions from which Joel Sternfeld's work germinated. He looked for answers in Dubai, a city where more of life is played out in the cool, luxurious shopping malls than outside. They offer everything, from excellent food courts, arcades and bowling alleys to IKEA and children's entertainment. Disneyland in the desert. Sternfeld wandered the malls and recorded the consumption of luxury and leisure with an appropriate device: the iPhone, the ultimate gadget of the modern masses.
