The Cultures of the Middle Eastern and North African Mediterranean Countries.
A photographic assignment depicting the people, religions, cultures and environment of the Middle East, North African countries and Palestinian territories of the Mediterranean.
My journey will start in Istanbul, Turkey, the gateway to Asia. Istanbul is the only city in the world that straddles two different continents giving a fusion between Eastern and Western civilisations.
I intend to travel overland by means of public transport, down through southern Turkey into Syria, Jordan, and Lebanon and into Egypt where I will finish this stage of the assignment. The final stage of the project will take me to Israel and the Palestinian territories to complete and finalise the assignment.
Stage One: Morocco; July 2009.
Stage Two: Middle East; September 2010.
Stage Three: Israel & Palestinian Territories; April 2011.
