Anita Van der Krol (born in The Netherlands 1946). Photography has played a key role  through Van der Krol’s entire life. She began photographing the world around her at the tender age of 10 and began formal training in secondary school. Between 1975 and 1980 Van Der Krol documented everyday life in the Dubai area with hundreds of photographs. A photographic book of this period has been published by Cewe Fotoboek Publishers entitled Dubai 1975-1980.  

Van Der Krol continues to photograph in the Netherlands where she now lives.
