In the beginning of 2017 I involuntarily spent a few months in the United Arab Emirates.
Exploring Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Fujairah and Ras al-Khaimah.
Got arrested while taking pictures in Fujairah on day seven. Spent four days in a prison cell, sleeping on the floor. My embassy managed to bail me out. Unfortunately, the Emirati authorities made a big fuzz out of it. “National security threat,” they said. They confiscated my passport. And my mobile. It took me three months to get the charges dropped. However, I do like the pictures.
The series is now published as one part of “Beirut / Tokyo 東京 and one picture of Mt. Fuji / Happy in the U.A.E.”
