“Indigenous Palestinians have faced an ongoing cultural genocide over the past 65 years and continue to experience a forced odyssey that has been characterized by repeated cycles of catastrophic displacement, debilitating deprivation, tenacious resistance and admirable resilience.

Palestinian refugees have become the forgotten survivors of the world. Their experiences in exile have been deliberately ignored and their voices repeatedly silenced.  While Palestinians continue to be  educed to an absence in their native homeland, the continuity of their stories and images ensures their presence and survival.  Portraits of Denial & Desire is a multidisciplinary project that attempts to make the images and narratives of Palestinian refugees indelible, and their personal experiences in exile unforgettable."
