Welcome to Jerusalem where my journey together with Carl and Epiphany from 365docobites starts. This means that for the next two weeks portraits from our journey will be up on Humans of Amsterdam combined with docobites (2-4 minute film portraits.) Combining photography and film is something I always have been very interested in so this was a wonderful opportunity to do so. Feel free to share your feedback. Please remember that the idea of this project is not to make a political statement of any kind or to represent a people or a nation. Our true intention is to simply share the human stories from the people in these areas that we met along the way.

*Also I would like to give out a special shout out to those who got involved by voting or contributing financially to this project.
