I am one of the lucky few who live across three cities.
In Ras Al-Khaimah I find my escapist self. It is my hometown, place of birth, and where I generally spend my weekends. Among its decaying, abandoned places, I see the prospects, all the beautiful prospects that a young being, be it a man or a city, is eager to fulfil.
Dubai is also young, but very ambitious. I live, work, and play there. It is a wonderland yet it is terribly pragmatic. It is a city of steel, gears, and reflective architecture.
Abu Dhabi is covered in a mist of sophistication that only a capital can afford. It does not need to to flaunt its beauty; you will have to work for it, discover it for yourself. The subtle architecture is made of narrative, of a meaningful past, of a commitment to preserve what makes a country a home.
This is an ongoing, deeply personal project to document the spirit of the three wondrous cities that I carry with me wherever I go.
