I visited Deheishe in Bethlehem, to meet the people behind the greenhouses that have been appearing on the roofs of many homes in the overcrowded refugee camp.
While in Amman, Jordan, I explored the arty side of this complex city. We are used to measure the impact of refugee crises through statistics displaying lowering socioeconomic indices but what of the positive impact refugees have on the cultural production of the host country?
This story came out in the run up to the Israeli parliamentary elections in March 2015. The Joint List was breathing new hope into Israeli politics. In Tel Aviv, I asked both its Jewish and Palestinians supporters what is special about it.
Here I met the X-Games team of Qalqiliya. They do crazy stuff on a skate ramp in a city quite literally surrounded by Israel’s separation wall.
Bawwabet Al Quds was a protest camp set up by Palestinian activists to oppose the forced relocation by Israeli authorities of Palestinian Bedouins on the lands of Abu Dis. Bedouins are being moved to make room for more Israeli settlements, which are in breech of international law.
During my stay in Australia I met some really active and passionate indigenous people who are fighting for their right to land, identity and self-determination.
This one is from Gaza, where from mid July to mid August I documented the impact of Israeli bombardments during the 2014 war.
This is one is from the north of the Strip where following a prolonged ceasefire Bedouin families from the community of Umm al Nasser began making their way back. Only to find their homes in pieces.
