Al Jamal is Arabic for camel and the name of my first and longest documentary project.

I got inspired by "Seven Pillars of Wisdom" of T. E Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia) and by "Arabian Sands" of Wilfred Thesiger.

With 16 extensive expeditions into the most remote deserts of North Africa and the Arabian Peninsula the main focus was on the Bedouin and Berber desert people – adapted to a nomadic lifestyle. The environment and climate was extreme and harsh.

The project lasted for 6 years and it took me to the deserts of Jordan, Egypt, Morocco, Oman and Saudi Arabia.
