Photographer's Note

This gentle Druze man is a dairy farmer, still working the same land that his family has owned for many generations. Although the region where he lives is often threatened by war in a political quarrel over borders that has nothing to do with him, he refuses steadfastly to leave, saying that he would rather die quickly at home than slowly in an alien place.
Although he is completely blind, he still walks his land without the aid of even a stick. In a very short time, I came to love him and his spirit.
