Photographic Resistance with Kuffiyahs

~

The Palestinian spirit not only lives in every Palestinian, but also in every human being’s heart that believes in the power of justice, respect, dignity, peace, and resistance against oppression. The true noble spirit is found in s/he who can uphold those values with beauty and grace.

Resistance can take form in protests, petitions, speech, visual arts, music, poetry, political levels.. and, in my particular case, through photography as well.

“Flowers grew where you stood,

sprung from the soles of you,

strong despite the shade

from the shadow you left.

You leave gardens

every time

you walk away.” (Tyler K. Gregson)

All praise is due to God.
