Captured through the lens of acclaimed photographer Gilles Bensimon, “A Dream of AlUla” is an expedition through time and the senses. Filled with 215 pages of original photography, the book reveals the poetic aspects and magnificence of age-old desert landscapes and highlights the people who lived there from history and today. Home to the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Hegra, where exceptionally preserved tombs of the Nabataean age show elaborate facades cut out of sandstone outcrops, it’s a hidden treasure waiting to be discovered.
“I will not begin to describe, or even attempt to tell the story of my journey in AlUla. I can only hope that my photographs might open the door to a new dream in your mind: the dream of meeting AlUla.”
