Summary
"In ARAMCO: Above the Oil Fields, Ayesha Malik delivers a personalized account of life within Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, a gated community originally created as a home for American employees of the Arabian American Oil Company, now known as Saudi Aramco. This small town houses the world's wealthiest company with the world's largest energy reserves. in 2018, as part of Saudi Arabia's Vision 2030 plan, the public sale of a percentage of the company is expected to be the biggest IPO in history, valued at around $2 trillion. Malik shares the surprising warmth, familiarity, and timelessness of this 22-and-a-half square-mile place that so many Aramcons call home. Her photographs raise conversations about perception and preconceived ideas regarding a home that is neither fully Saudi nor fully American, a home unlike any other" --
