The Grooms


This photo was taken by Esther van der Ham, a MSc student in the Sociology Department. This photo was taken at Sana'a al-qadiema (The Old City of Sana'a), Capital of Yemen.

'I took the picture of these men's wedding party from my apartment in Sana'a. The grooms (the men with the swords and the flowers) and their families dance through the streets towards the houses of their brides. They came through the street where I lived so I could see the whole ceremony. I took the picture to bring some of this special experience home with me.'
