lebanon. / by Maranie Staab

i am going back through some images taken in lebanon this past october as i consider my plans for 2017. this image is of a palestinian family that has called the dbayeh camp home for the past several decades. they welcomed me into their home, insisted upon serving me coffee and told me their story.

the desire to get on a plane and step off of it into a new, undiscovered (to me) place is always just under the surface of who i am. most days i am able to quiet that voice enough to allow me to focus on work here in pittsburgh, but some days it demands to be heard. today is one of those days.
