UAE - Haddama - Shabiya 12
It is a disturbing feeling, while seeing kids playing and families congregating under the haddama sign marking the fate of their home, wondering what their destiny will be.
And it is equally disturbing to know that the dilapidated homes you pass by, with the inevitable curtain before the front door protecting the occupants’ intimacy, will soon be no more and that only the memories of the inhabitants will keep them alive. Walking the street of Shabiya I felt I was visiting two places at the same time: the physical one and the one that will be remembered.
This work would like to be a testimony to these people that anonymously built the city that eventually evicted them.
