In the past couple of years I have been rekindling with my lifelong love of photography. This is my first submission to any kind of photography awards.
I am an autodidact in photography, I started in the era of film and dark rooms, now I use digital and Lightroom.
I chose to go experience this holiday in Jerusalem and to listen to the voices of this community that usually gets overlooked in Israel. I don't know what I expected to find there, but the celebration was lively, the prayers heartfelt, and the embrace of the Jewish Ethiopian community to anyone who wished to join in their celebration was truely heart warming. I'm so glad I went to participate and document this special event.
