Meet Us on the Abraham Path
Date: October 16, 2021
In towns throughout Southwest Asia, you will always meet someone named Abraham — Ibrahim, in Arabic, Turkish, and Kurdish. Journalist Lisa Dupuy and photographer Daniel Maissan have embarked on a “slow journalism” project: they’re walking in Southwest Asia to meet people named after the prophet who’s regional legacy is hospitality. What is real life like for today’s Ibrahim? In this episode of Meet Us on the Abraham Path, Lisa and Daniel will tell stories from their recent trek in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq and introduce us to the Abrahams/Ibrahims they met along the way!
