John Den­nehy Shoukat Ali / AP Photo Un­for­tu­nately, we do not know a lot about this im­age. We do not know who this man was or where he was from. But we do know that it was taken in Au­gust, 1981, in Abu Dhabi dur­ing the Eid Al Fitr cel­e­bra­tions. He’s wear­ing avi­a­tor sun­glasses – a clas­sic 80s style, and is us­ing a booq, a type of horn. In the left cor­ner we can see a group men who look like they are about to per­form the Al Ayala dance – they are as­sem­bling in a line and seem to be hold­ing the tra­di­tional sticks. In 2014, the dance art was added to the Unesco cul­tural her­itage list.
