I get asked frequently how I manage to photograph people I do not know. In April I was travelling through the empty quarter in the Liwa desert in Abu Dhabi and I saw this group of Arab men at the other side of the salt lake taking pictures .
I walked to the other side while photographing my colleagues until I was standing next to the men and then I just smiled and asked if I could photograph them.
My colleague captured my approach to make contact. Thank you Maria-Louisa!
