A collective Wedding is a marriage ceremony in which several couples are married at the same time. I had the privilege of attending one in Ta'izz, Yeman. The ceremony was held in a theater with the grooms. the ceremony began with speeches, then poetry readings, and then a play. afterwards the grooms came to the stage accompanied with yemeni folk music. I was able to take portrait photos of the 39 grooms.

My friends in Philly made it my second home. Provided warmth and advice, and a shoulder to lean on. My final film in philly was simply a camera pointed towards them. Its my way of showing gratitude.
