Images for Life

Colours of My City, Maram Elmashekh

Images for Life, a two-year community based project sponsored by Fellow Abdelfattah Abusrour’s Al Rowwad Cultural and Theatre Training Center in Bethlehem’s Aida refugee camp, aims to train Palestinian youth and adults in professional photography and video as a “powerful tool for change and a beautiful means of resistance.” The photographs and the videos (here and here) presented shed light on both the sober and joyful realities of life in the camp, as well as an unmistakable expression of hope for the future of the community.
