Summer/Fall 2017 and Website Updates

Things have been quiet on the blog for a while, my last blog post was in June, which coincided with the birth of my first child and is probably the reason I’ve been off the airwaves for so long. Another reason is the unavailability of my Leica

Ein Qiniya Field Notes VII

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
