17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
History Stands Still

This photo is for the oldest shop in Ramallah's owner. He and his brother opened the shop in their youth and grew old with it. The shop is traditional down to its details. When you walk in you immediately feel like you have traveled in time to how Palestine used to be. They both remained strong, authentic and unshaken. His face and the details of his shop tell that story.
