Pic(k) of the week 20: STREET PHOTOGRAPHY IN SATWA, DUBAI

Ditching Perfection

I haven’t taken a day off since I returned from France on March 19th. I even missed the 24 hour project this weekend because I was stuck in my office. Yes, running international  photo workshops is amazing, there is nothing else I would rather do....
