HAPPY IN THE U.A.E // MARTIN STöBICH

 

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. I got arrested while taking pictures in Fujairah on day seven. I 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. They confiscated my passport. And my mobile. “National security threat,” they said. It took me three months to get the charges dropped. However, I do like the pictures.
