The Longing ofthe Stranger Whose Path Has Been Broken
شوق الغريب للي تقطّع سبيله

Oh valley, your love is a home for the soul’s joy
Whenever I see you my heart grows
I come to you in longing full of pains
My soul returns to me as I approach your grounds

The Longing of the Stranger Whose Path Has Been Broken is a personal project in which I reconnect to my roots and explore the notion of an identity cited through the Bedouin community of St. Catherine in South Sinai, Egypt. I’m working collaboratively with the community to create a body of work about the search for belonging and the interconnectedness of people and land.
