Middle East Exploration

PrizeHonorable Mention
Entry Description

I was tired of being told what the Middle East was, so for the last few years I have gone there to find out. Nothing prepares you for the warmth of the people or the layers of history literally in front of your eyes, where else can you see skyscrapers and pyramids? I hope that through my photographs I have been able to illustrate the truth about this misunderstood region and provide context to what isn't a clash of civilizations, but a lack of communication.
