Photographer's Note

Caught at the courtyard of the Umayyad Mosque this father may be seen as a representative of the older generation, the son of the young generation of Syrians. How much longer will the young follow the traditions of their fathers? The clothing, attitude to religion, etc. The wind of change is blowing, not only here, and we can't realy stop the process now...At first glance a lot of places in Syria, as well as the people, are still very much oriental for an avarage European, but with the tendency among young people to accept the western style of life, it may not be so for much longer...
