You may use my photos freely, just please acknowledge © Amy Gansell.

If you do use my photos, I’d love to hear about it — especially if you publish them. Also, if you are looking for more images of a particular type, please contact me. I may have higher resolution and additional images not shared here.

Adding photos, old and new, to this site is an ongoing process. Please bookmark it and check back!

The Harvard University Committee on the Use of Human Subjects in Research determined the projects (conducted in 2002 and 2006) producing these pictures to be exempt from review. All subjects granted their permission to be photographed and for their images to be shared publicly. Travel research was supported by the G. Sinopoli Memorial Grant for Research in the Near East (2002) and the Aga Khan Foundation (2006). Many thanks to my hosts, translators, and field assistants: Tony and Georgette Khouri (2002), Joseph Malki (2002), Marwan and Hanan Materwani (2006), Bacel Moqaw (2006), and Ahmad Shadeh (2006).
