Over the summer period I was in #Jordan working on #personal stories, so I decided to do a short video on #pigeon trainers. I was introduced to twin brothers Samer and Bilal, a beautiful little story. it was a lot of fun, I learned a lot specially in terms of shooting and storytelling.
To see the video you can visit my website
Samer and Bilal Maroun, originally from Jaffa, Palestine, have been training pigeons for the past 30 years in downtown Amman, Jordan. Their story is simple yet heart warming. In a volatile and politically unstable region such as the Middle East where differences stem out of identity, race, religion and social status, the twin brothers were able to rise above these differences through the simple life they chose, the goodness of their heart and their acceptance of everyone regardless of their religion or their origin.
