Merj Al-Hamam Collection
Midday summer sunlight shines down upon homes and buildings in the neighborhood of Marj Al-hamam (منطقة مرج الحمام) in the ancient city of Amman, now the capital of Jordan and once the central metropolis in Transjordan for the Roman, Ammonite, and Muslim empires. In the early summer mornings, the cool sun slowly rises, with gradients and pastel skies casting a majestic impression upon the city and its surroundings. Later on every summer day, at a time where the city streets are empty as the heat reaches its peak, the piercing sunlight and bright sky creates an intriguing visual contrast with the desertesque sunbaked regional architecture.
The city of Jerusalem, known in Arabic as Al-Quds (القدس) - literally translating to 'The Holy' - serves not just as the capital of Palestine, but as a core holy site in all three Abrahamic faiths — Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. The Al Quds collection serves to show the wondrous beauty of Jerusalem's Old City, mosques, churches, market, and the aura of the heart of Palestine.
