You may not have seen the film of the title here. I encourage you to do so. It seemed appropriate for this image, in terms of reflecting how open our lives are to observation by others, and yet how insular we are. Dubai is a fantastic place, in that it welcomes people from many diverse cultures, and is safe for them. And yet it is a lonely place. If you know no one, it is possible to be the loneliest person alive, surrounded by others. This photograph was taken from the apartment of my good friend Maria, who prevented Dubai from being a lonely place for me.

I think I understand what you are saying Chris, I used to spend a lot of time in some of the poorest most desolate places in the good ole USA, Reservations. It was difficult to be trapped between 2 cultures, two lives, even two selves, not really fitting into either. As the old saying goes “Neither Wolf nor Dog”. Causes a sense of loneliness.

I’m with you. I was commissioned from the ranks (was a Private Soldier, became a young officer). That was, as you describe, like being trapped between two cultures. Accepted by both, but never quite properly a member of either. In Brit speak I think we call it running with the fox and the hounds.

Lovely images. Is that the German movie about the Stasi listener making a connection with the writer he is recording? One of my favorite movies!!!

Chris I have seen that movie and I agree with you. It is very moving because it was real. It reeks of KNVD. AS always great shots Chris
