Finding comfort in prayer

The father, the son and the afternoon nap.

I was working in Hebron, in the West Bank, during Ramadan. I climbed a 10-foot-high concrete barrier to get away from all the other photographers. I was up there for an hour, waiting for prayers to start. The little boy was fidgety from the beginning. His father kept trying to show him how to pray. Once the prayers started he just collapsed on his father's back.
