Smile, You Are in Sharjah
For a furniture store’s photo shoot, photographer Prem Ratnam went for an untried approach. He had the living room set assembled on a green lawn, in front of Sharjah’s landmark hillocks inscribed with “Smile, You Are in Sharjah.” The furniture rests on greenery that was laid as part of Sharjah Municipality’s beautification project. In the background stands one of Sharjah’s early tower apartment blocks, Sharjah Tower, designed by Halcrow Group Architectural Practice in 1986. Courtesy of Prem Ratnam.
