Maitha’s Interview : 

Tell us a little bit about you?

  • I am fascinated by our local culture, traditions and heritage. My inspiration is our country’s future, the future that I do not want to miss out on everything I capture. By my work I am capturing history and culture through an artistic eye for generations to come. I want the coming generations to feel what I feel when taking those pictures, I want them proud of where they come from. My interest in Culture and Heritage extends even to my studies at Zayed University in Dubai where I am majoring in Emirati Studies. Through my studies, I want to support my captures with research and vice versa in order to transfer the physical and the mental picture to our coming generations.
