Architect and photographer Petros N. Zouzoulas had the chance to escape into the Sultanate of Oman to take some amazing photos of the desert.

“I’ve had the rare privilege to travel and camp through much of the Sultanate of Oman.  This rather brief photographic essay of landscapes was taken over a period of 5 years from 2007-2012.  The locations range from the far northern parts of Oman in Mussandam to the Hajar mountains in central Oman.  While many of these places appeared rather untouched in my earlier visits, new access to many of these sites has brought people and along with them trash which has scarred the landscape.  I will not reveal the location of any further for fear that I would further accelerate the demise of this land by those who would pollute it.

The Sultanate of Oman has provided us quiet refuge from the city lights and fast moving pace from our work in Dubai.  Beside its grand mountains and endless sky, we have been reminded that we are small beings under the heavens.  For this privilege I’d like to thank the Sultan of Oman for his generosity for allowing westerners like myself to experience his wonderful country.”
