Life in a Metro
by Shivaum Punjabi, India
"Dubai is a city known for its glamorous lifestyle. Fast cars are seen everywhere, and most people own cars. When the Dubai Metro was announced, everyone thought it would fail due to cheap cars, cheap fuel and a vast highway network. They were all proved wrong. Within a few months of starting, the Dubai Metro was a resounding success. A super hit with tourists and residents alike. Designed to be the future proof, it is driverless and the stations are state of the art not only in terms of design, but amenities as well."
"Rules are designed to be broken but before you break them, learn to master them" is what Shivaum says. Shivaum's schooling in photography was done in a traditional manner following the gurukul system. However, his guru spotted his eye for abstract contemporary photography and encouraged him to pursue it. Pushing the boundaries of conventional photography and styles, he came up with his own unique style. In addition, Shivaum is also an automotive journalist and photographer with an active business background. Shivaum works and lives in Dubai and has achieved various photographic distinctions and awards.
