The Warriors

In the Emirates, foreign labor has significantly increased over the past year due to cheap salaries. I did those portraits on a construction site in UAE. I simply went to meet them and ask if i could take a snapshot. It was in the middle of the day, the sun was high and it was very hot. I found them very courageous, braves, proud, strong and kind. I could not just pass by and ignore them.  There are like the one who built the Pyramids of Egypt…  They look like warriors to me, fighting against the elements….Fighting for a better life…
