Capturing the Stillness of Oman During Ramadan

At the start of Ramadan in 2018, photographer Sascha Luna Esmail traveled to Oman – the oldest independent state in the Arab world. Temperatures are constantly above 110 degrees and tourists are virtually non-existent this time of year, so Esmail was able to experience historic landmarks like the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque and the Royal Opera House in their full glory. Continue on for a closer look at some of the most iconic sites in Oman, as shot by Sascha Luna Esmail. Make sure to follow her on Instagram at @by.sascha.esmail.


Inside the 'Wolf of Wall Street' House

The “Wolf of Wall Street” Jordan Belfort, the real-life stockbroker portrayed by Leonardo DiCaprio in the 2013 film, led his lavish lifestyle at an 8,706-square-foot mansion in Old Brookville, Long Island. After being seized by the government to pay back some of the millions that were owned to Belfort's fraud victims, it was sold in 2001. The 8,706 square foot home has been transformed by the current owners. There are five bedrooms, six baths, a two-story foyer, a sunken living room, and a billiards room with a walk-in wet bar. Outside, there is a pool, a pond, and multiple terraces.
