Ramallah Walks IX

The 9th photographic collection in my Ramallah Walks series offers an odd mixture of nostalgia, film noir, intense light, vivid colour, and a sprinkle of politics. All these elements come together to offer a snapshot of this chaotic bubble called Ramallah– this lousy pretence to peace, affluence,

Ein Qiniya Field Notes IX

We’ve had some rain lately so I’ve been hitting the olive fields of Ein Qiniya more often looking for greenery and early buds in the ground. This also happens to be the season for olive harvest in Ein Qiniya and in Palestine at large, so farmers can be found all

Getting out in the open fields of Ein Qiniya, a small village on the outskirts of Ramallah, has lately become a near-weekly ritual for me which if skipped leaves a palpable gap in my life. More than ever I feel the need for roaming the open fields and
