Living in the UAE is a constant battle with dust, sand and sandstorms, especially during summer, but they can occur in any seasons of the year. Fine, powdery dust creeps under doors and through cracks in the windows and gets into everything. Particularly vicious storms obscure the sky and the sun for days on end. Going out during these days becomes a hazard.

These photos were taken by Sydney-based photographer Irenaeus Herok.
