Photographer's Note

Nothing special from Dubai. No breath-taking skyscrapers, no tourists. But... We see a lot of pictures of fishermen but very very rarely of the fisherwoman. So it is kind of special though.
Dubai Creek was my favourite place in Dubai. I stayed in a hotel in Deira, very close to it and I went there many times. I like the view of the long row of the old boats similar to the ones I saw on the islands of Iran. Nothing so strange, it is very near. Also, the buildings on the other side are like these in Iran, in Yazd for instance, with the characteristic wind towers.

I will upload two Workshops.

I am horrified reading what is happening now in Iran. I am very lucky to be back at home. I felt so safe there! And now, first, the protests against the government, with 1500 Iranian citizens dead. The most violent protests since the rise of Iran's Islamic Republic in 1979. Recently, the events after the killing the general, and only yesterday the crash of the aircraft. I suppose that was the connection I used going from Tehran to Kyiv.
