Burkini By Melina Papageorgiou

“In Abu Dhabi the sound apears artificial, often asking my self were it comes from. There is a continuous background noise – from cars, air conditions and constructions that never change as the day is transitioning to night. The gleaming sunlight creates a contrast to the hidden and the covered. Women are bathing in public; many go fully clothed into the water, some are wearing full body swimsuits: burkinis.”
