Publisher Note english

Kingdom of Sand and Cement explores the challenge of progress Saudi Arabia is faced with as it rapidly transforms from a conservative and tribal desert culture to an influential world power. In less than a century Saudi Arabians went from living in mud buildings to commencing work on the world's tallest skyscraper. Examining this legacy through large-format color photographs the artist identifies the country's grand aspirations as clearly as its grand failures.

Peter Bogaczewicz is a photographer and architect based in Toronto and currently residing in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
