In the souks of the capital Muscat, there are always dozens of perfume shops, where you can find women in full-length abayas (overgarments), their eyes blackened with kohl, giggle and chatter as they sample scents, the most wonderful heritage and traditions of Sultanate of Oman – Perfume.
Photographer: Aude-Emilie Dorion (Paris, France) Registered Photographer
Freelance photographer and writer Aude-Emilie Dorion was born in France in 1980. Sensitive to the effect of globalization on modern cultures and the inequity of the world’s economic development, tensions and transformations are at the heart of her creative work. Working in the live performance industry, photography from time to time became the best vector of communication. Aude-Emilie loves artistic photography but has always been attracted by social documentary and photojournalism. When the Art becomes more social and political it reaches one of its primary functions: raising public awareness, acting as a catalyst for political changes.
