From the Qatari Chronicles series

Doha II

October, 2014


Following my previous album featuring some first impressions from my 2-month-long stay in boiling hot Doha, and after a long decompression period once back home in Zurich, I hereby summon the second batch of photos took during my stay in Qatar. It’s been almost two months since I left Arabia, though my memories of the place, experiences and the people encountered remain very much vivid.

What follows here is a selection of photos from the mid-weeks of my Qatari adventure. I’ve been playing with cinematic-like treatment of photos back then, which is why you’ll spot some grain, vignetting, cooler & less vibrant colours and some more clarity applied. Love it or not, do have your say—I’d love to hear your thoughts.
