Pin Up Stories- Victor
Today's pin up is the one I refer to as 'Victor'.
I took the picture in a backstreet of Al Quoz.
It is a picture of a factory that I can actually see and smell from my street in Umm suqueim. The smell is very faint, but to me, funnily enough, it triggers childhood memories. Memories of driving to my grandparent's house, when, just before we reached their town, we would drive by a factory powered by peat, and it filled the whole area with that peculiar burning peat smell.
You can see her 'live' at Pro Art Gallery, Dubai, until July 2016.
As for the Pin Up, she had to have that 'Jane and Tarzan' vibe to her, to reflect on the 'Urban Jungle' that is Al Quoz.
