Photographing Palestine: Life and Hope

I once asked a Palestinian woman, why don't you go to Jordan rather than stay in occupied Palestine? She replied: "Because that's what they want us to do. They want us to leave our homes."

"A meal of stuffed vine leaves and zucchinis at #hoshyasmine organic Resturaunt (and art retreat) in #BeitJala #Palestine - nothing better than a meal here at sunset with the valley of Walaja ahead. A warning though - the Israeli settlement of Gilo continues to push its way in from the North. If I moved my camera a bit to the right you would see the monstrosity it has on the landscape and harmony of nature." Photo Credit: Sami Alalul.
