For a picture that is, at its most basic, just seven men standing around, it has a real feel of energy. Razan Alzayani captured a potter, Ahmed Rashed Mohammed Al Haymar, bottom, holding a demonstration in his fatherís old stone home with members of his tribe in Ras Al Khaimah recently; the fact that some of them are looking directly towards the camera while others talk or look out of the frame keeps your eye moving around the whole scene.
