Qatar is a beautiful country, a hidden gem of the Persian Gulf. It’s enough only to get on the dhow, to widen up your views, to free your soul. And somewhere on the horizon, David Lean is making his new Lawrence of Arabia, who is still fighting for freedom. On his gracious camel. And the wind, it never stops blowing. And bringing new hope. While falcon sways his wings.
Qatar is the country of magical tradition and history. A culture that survives. It offers a lot to photographers, researchers, storytellers, tourists. Who knows what the desert hides? Maybe some old city, civilization we haven’t discovered yet. A treasure that can show us someone else’s swirl of memories? That powerful force from the bottom of the people’s souls.
Isn’t photography a means that evokes, reminds, and provokes us? It makes us smile. It makes us shed a tear. A tear of joy, while sinking into albums of our memories.
Qatar is Arabian magic, always in pursuit of peace. Black and white, like Yin and Yang. Always harmonious and lightsome, like photography.
