Indian Workers, 2009 text

< Back to project

I met the Indian workers pictured in my photographs in construction areas all over Muscat, Oman which is developing at a very high pace. Local companies here, constructing new building facilities in the city employ a lot of workers of Indian and Asian origins – mostly simple but hard working people.

All of the photographs were taken during the night time whilst the workers were waiting for company trucks to take them back to their quarters.  The images present only a small fraction of the total workforce here.  Asians are the major ethnic group of the working class in the GCC countries.
