When you leave it all behind for somewhere brand new, a lot of things happen. The experience can swing from loneliness to closeness. I’m fascinated by the way expatriate life affects different people. I’ve been slowly documenting the day to day of the expat English teachers at my private school, here’s a peek of what I have so far.
I’ve found someone downtown who will develop my film and work with me to decide what to print and how. The old guys at this photo shop are wonderful. They started gently questioning my choice to use film, but once I pulled out both my OM-1 and my Nikon they seemed to understand. I’m excited to have partners instead of a nameless developer and printer. Soon, this collection will include shots from my last few rolls. It’s a slow process here in Nablus though.
