FULLY FUELED: BASILE MOOKHERJEE. {Title from cover.} Edition Patrick Frey, Zurich, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 168 pp. with 185 col. ills. 34 x 26 cm. ISBN 9783906803159 In English.
Large format; chiefly pictorial. Publisher's description: Where once there was desert, cities sprawl for miles; sixteen-lane highways dictate urban rhythm and daily commutes, often taking hours. Abu Dhabi and Dubai's car culture and high-consumption environment is the subject of Fully Fueled, French social documentary photographer Basile Mookherjee's newest look into a culture rarely explored. In 2012 and 2014, Mookherjee captured young Emiratis' nights out on the town. The traditionally garbed young men and women have created an entire subculture in and around their cars and against a Vegas-like urban backdrop. The oversized floppy catalog mimicking the glossy pages of high-end fashion magazines portrays a strange world of over-the-top consumption. Reflecting on the UAE's abrupt petrodollar-driven modernization of essentially nomadic Middle Eastern culture, Mookherjee limns a world somewhere between desert dust and Gotham City, Islam and spending power, tradition and modernity. In addition to his career in fashion photography, Mookherjee explores the cultural contradictions inherent in our fast-changing world.
