Aleppo: The City of Love

Ye who are going to Aleppo
my beloved has left with you
Ye who carry grapes know
beneath the grapes lie apples
Everyone is with their beloved
and my beloved is gone
O Lord, may a breeze
return my beloved to me
-    Popular Aleppine Folk Song

This is documentation of my late 2010 journey to my ancestral city, Aleppo, where love was found and lost. The photos help me rediscover my complex relationship with love, family, and paradise.
