Spices are the most important commodities that have become the forerunner of global trade. The traditional Dubai Spice Souk is proof of the spread of spices in the world. As one of the locations of the spice route that connects Asia, Africa and Europe, this spice souk is a means of cultural exchange that can be seen in a tangible way. Currently, not only spices, but other traditional commodities from various places are also traded here, such as fragrance, herbs, household, textiles, tea, incense, rugs and artifacts.
The technique used for this artwork is street photography with the right time to get good lighting, and waiting for visitors to pass by, so that the bazaar’s view can look interesting. This photo was taken in Dubai, Uni Emirate Arab in 2018.
