typical photographs of the maldives are bursting with azure seas and skies. i didn't see the maldives the way most people do. i lived amongst the locals. i worked alongside the migrant workers. this is what i saw.
maybe you noticed. there are no photos of women. since the maldives is a strict muslim country, i didn't feel comfortable pointing my lens towards a maldivian woman.
these photographs were made in late 2014. i hope they offered a rare and different view of the maldives. thank you for visiting.
