It is an abstract approach to some of Kuwait city buildings and London buildings, like ( Tujaria tower, Martyr tower, Gherkin tower) I was influenced by the medieval Arabian sword which is famous for it is curved blade and wide surface, I saw the buildings as a sword ( which is called Scimitar ) I used fisheye and ultrawide lens, benefitting from it is distortion as much as possible.


It is a visual lifeless imaginary struggle story. just follow the lines and highlights to get them alive.
