In 2016 I had the chance to roam through Dubaï on my own.  I didn't want to show the glitz and glamour Dubaï. It was a challenge to capture the hard, raw world in and around the Dhow Warfage, located in the old town of Dubaï. I didn't know if that was possible as a woman in this mainly Islamitic mensworld, but after a few days, the friendly and modest men are willing to pose for my camera and tell their stories.
