The Kite

Sameer Hallaq captures one of his fondest childhood memories: building kites. The colorful vibrancy of the kites he created reverberated the atmosphere that surrounded him. So at ease and focused in those moments of creation, Hallaq clearly remembers the inner peace and contentment that he felt as a child, unaware and unaffected by his humble beginnings.
