AlBilad Village in Bahrain – Street & Documentary

I’ve met with a photographer from Bahrain in order to visit an old area, so we went to AlBilad AlQadeem Village located in the south-west of Manama, Bahrain which was originally at some point the capital of Bahrain before Manama, I’ve found lots great scene worth capturing & loved how the people interacted, I noticed that it has farms outside and some small ones inside the area. Here are some the photos I’ve captured.

قابلت مع أحد المصورين من البحرين الذي أخذني إلى أحد الأحياء القديمة لديهم، لذا ذهبنا إلى البلاد القديم وهي قرية تقع جنوب غرب المنامة في البحرين والتي كانت في وقت ما عاصمة البحرين قبل انتقالها إلى المنامة، وجدت هناك الكثير من المشاهد التي تستحق التصوير وأحببت طريقة تفاعل الناس مع المصور، لاحظت كذلك وجود بعض المزارع في طرف القرية وداخلها. هذه بعض الصور التي إلتقطتها من هناك.

All photos captured in Mar 2017 – Manama, Bahrain
