“As a multicultural being, embodied with a Palestinian identity, it was important for me to understand the conflict, rooted into a culture, that influences the narrative of my Palestinian identity. Photography assisted me to reach an understanding of what my identity means, and how each individual carries their own version of one.”

Dialog # 12 from the Timeline:

Where is your home?

I’m in between a few places, here and there.

So where is your stuff? Your clothes?
