Stay A While: Portraits from India and Palestine

When I lived in India and Palestine, my family and friends in the U.S. asked me frequently, "When are you coming home?" On the flip side of the question, I had new friends telling me to never leave. Working as an educator, wandering as a photographer, and inquiring as a scholar of life, I met scores of people whose smiles, generosity, sense of humor, and customs beckoned me to stay a while. These portraits highlight a few of them.
