It is true that artists are hurting due to the pandemic. With events canceled and business closures, artists lost their main income. For me, it is important to support your local artists. Can you imagine life without pictures, music, videos, paintings, poetry, books, movies et al?

“Art is what moves us.”

There are ways to support your local and favorite artists.

  1. Share their work on social media

  2. Buy their work

  3. Donate to your favorite arts org (if able)

I’m lucky to photograph Douglas, one of the super talented musicians in Dubai.

It was great knowing his interests and learning from him. Please check him out on Spotify and Instagram:

Thank you Douglas for trusting me with this photoshoot. All the best!
