To The City of Amman: The Lit Sidewalks of the city

To The City Of Amman,

A sentence you find on almost every roundabout in Amman or at least in the western part of Amman. Every day passing through one of them and I think, is it really to the city of Amman? Who decided that this project that I like to call 'Tron Legacy' city lights theme qualifies as a gift for our city? If anything it is plain useless and does not serve any function whatsoever but advertising the companies that did it, we already had a sidewalk that served its purpose as being a sidewalk, why do we need a one that lights up? I find it absurd that a marketing department in one of our great companies pulled a project like this and I find it even more absurd that a dozen other companies copied the idea!

Wakalat Street 2014 } شارع الوكالات ٢٠١٤

By: Sabri Hakim

For over 5 years I worked next to Wakalaat Street. I made use of it for power walks, quick Starbucks meetings, Haloum at Ward Ou Kabab and occasionally from New Man, a shirt as colorful as the street it laid on.

Wakalaat is like a 60 year old with endless facelifts. As a citizen experiencing it first hand, it felt like a meal, prepared by 12 chefs, who all had different definitions for sweet and sour.

Anyways, it's no longer a pedestrian only street, here is a shoot of its latest construction, I tried to capture the sense of loss I felt when I walked there.
