I do things with words, mainly English and Arabic
Today, I have researched, downloaded and examined so many bloody photographs for exhibition that I am starting to loath the upcoming Hebron-Leichhardt festival more than I can express.
Nevertheless, these amazing images of Palestine by Luke Powell, taken in the 1980s, are well worth a look. As is this article and the accompanying images – although the politics are questionable, via both its association with Bar Ilan University (which helped to establish the higher education institution in Ariel settlement) and the circumstances of some of the photos themselves, in one case taken by an Israeli soldier during a raid. But it is interesting (and disturbing) for its photo of a much younger Zakaria Zubeidi, and of the early days of the Israeli occupation of Gaza.
In a completely different league of photographic crapness, I also unearthed some lousy scans of photos I took in and around Bethlehem during Operation Defensive Shield in 2002. They’re here.
