When you think of Dubai, you probably imagine a booming city filled with wealthy people living and doing the things that wealthy people do. In these photos by Berlin-based photographer Matthias Heiderich, the city is the exact opposite. Early this year, Heiderich spent some time in Dubai photographing the city's many construction projects. The resulting photos are beautiful, yet chilling. Besides the buildings and other man-made structures, there are no signs of life. It looks like the opening scene of a zombie horror film, just before the protagonist wakes up to an evacuated city, wanders around, and stumbles onto a hoard of hungry, diseased walkers brain-eaters.
