Snaps ‘From the Sky’ reveal new facets of Oman

Muscat: Omani photographer Anas Al Dheeb is capturing stunning images of various beautiful parts of Oman, all ‘From the Sky,’ an aerial photography project that he has been working on in recent months.
“I have the Phantom drone, which I use to click my photos; I also use a helicopter sometimes. The photos are all aerial shots and so the project is called ‘From the Sky.’”
“The sands photo for example was taken in Salalah two months ago with the Phantom drone. The project is about pictures from the sky and I have divided it into mini projects, to include people, life, landscapes, and architecture.”
At a very young age, Al Dheeb has already won more than 35 local and international photography awards, including a gold medal in the World Cup for U-21 in Germany in 2014.
During the same year, he also bagged the first prize in the Gulf Cooperation Council photography contest, entitled, ‘Story of Light,’ which was organised at the Middle East College. Furthermore, Al Dheeb has won top honours—the Youth Creativity Award—in Dhofar.
After holding two personal exhibitions in Dubai and Japan, Al Dheeb recently held his first solo exhibition in Oman called ‘Journey of Life’ at the Bait Al Zubair.
