Since moving to Qatar from London in 2011, I have seen many different nationalities, but have been disappointed by the lack of mixing between them. Arabs mingle with other Arabs; Asians mingle with other Asians; Europeans mingle with other Europeans and so on.
This is a stark contrast to what I was used to in London; thus, the project Faces of Qatar was born. The aim of my project is to make people re-evaluate their perceptions of the other people living here and to encourage the different nationalities to meet and to get to know one another.
