Yesterday, we drove to Abu Dhabi for an errand. Given that it was probably the last time that we were going to that city, my husband and I decided to visit Qasr al-Hosn, the capital’s oldest stone building. The place was under renovation, so we only went to its museum. There, we found a free exhibition with artifacts that one would typically expect – traditional tools and handicrafts showcasing Emirati heritage. It was a nice set of objects and information; however, it was the last part of the exhibit that was the most fun for me, from a photographic perspective.
As a way to contemplate about the future of the country, the exhibit had cute little maquettes (or 3D models) of modern public life around Abu Dhabi City, with moving holograms of people. I underexposed the scenes to highlight the little people, and make them look more ghost-like. It felt a little like doing street photography, capturing people doing interesting activities. Hope you enjoy the results!
