Snow Cavern, Ski Dubai

Perhaps the most difficult aspect of photographing Dubai, Lancaster says, is that many locals discourage taking pictures of women, feeling that capturing a woman's face on film is disrespectful. In the festive environment of Ski Dubai, Lancaster felt comfortable training her lens on this young girl playing on a toy "ice bridge," but was still careful not to reveal the child's features. When in doubt, says Lancaster, it is always best to ask permission.
