Syrian Migrants, Bekaa Valley, Lebanon, 2009


Plans have finally been made to revisit my homeland, and the birthplace of my photography!

While photography is nearly impossible this time around, due to the tragedy happening next door, the thought of spending days with my cousins fills me with a sincere sense of joy.

We will see what awaits me, and I will have my camera just in case something is possible. In this image are the men from the camp which gave birth to my photography. This is how they receive me for tea upon arrival, with such warmth and generosity.

I look forward to seeing both of my families, and hope to revive my work in this most beautiful of countries.
