A series that documents old neighborhoods where UAE nationals of an older generation used to reside. Documenting here the places we used to meet and play; the #fereej (aka neighborhood). Playing with modest means in a very safe environment. This series is focusing on kids movement, innocence & their freedom to play.

 

"Being from a generation that witnessed our country evolve in a record time; I do see a huge difference in just a few years. Places, rituals and people changed. I reminisce; and my cam took me first to my old neighborhood (Jumeirah 1) my grandfather’s house. The house is still the same; but the tenants are not. This is where it all began. I still live in my past; and I know many of my generation are. Therefore; my portfolio initially documented old neighborhoods in Dubai; places where I grew up and families who used to reside 50 years ago (now are rented for tenants). "
