Prelude to the Sa'ama Ritual - Lalish, northern Iraq (2010)
The Sa'ama, or Evening Procession, is performed some of the nights during the 8-day Jema'iyye gathering at Lalish. The impatience of the throngs of Yezidis compressed into the Inner Courtyard behind me grows as a fakir patrols the space where the Sa'ama will soon be performed.
