SHARJAH MUSEUM OF ISLAMIC CIVILIZATION

Sharjah, UAE - 2016

My love for Sharjah is no secret, but visiting this museum made me love this city even more. It covers everything about the Islamic Civilization in a non-biased way. From inventions, to architecture, fashion, weaponry, to advances in medicine and agriculture, and so much more. 

It's brilliantly organized, and everything is so neat and informative. This wonderful museum is a must visit when you're in Sharjah. One area you better not miss is 'The Dome'. I was so overwhelmed in the best of ways, and could stay there forever.

Thank you, Sharjah.

BLACK & WHITE PANORAMAS

I loved how everything looked in my last cam date with Panorama, and decided to give it a go with a black and white film, IL FORD XP 2 SUPER 400. It uses a C41 process (to develop), and that just happens to be easier to find in this city. The rest of the photos were terribly underexposed, because they were taken indoors or when the sun was down.

ISLAMIC ART FESTIVAL & A SNIPPET OF BASTAKIYA

Sharjah & Dubai, UAE - 2015
I hope I get to visit this festival one more time before it ends. Absolutely wonderful, from beginning to end. Excellently curated too. These photographs don't do any of the pieces justice, but should be motivation enough for you to go check it out. 


We're horrible when it comes to planning anything outside Abu Dhabi; we just can't get the timings right. Bastakiya (Dubai) was a must visit, and we got lost looking for a place to park. We did manage to witness this beautiful moment.

ROADTRIPS ON FILM

Sharjah & Dubai, UAE - 2015
The past couple of months, Amna and I have been on a couple of road-trips to see Dina (experience new cities and what not).

Some of these were developed from disposables and others from donna (canon ae-1). The polaroids are taken with an instax mini 90.
