Images from Israel and Palestine
Images from several places in Israel and Palestine are added to Travel and Leisure. Many of them taken in bedouin communities where the population are threatened by forcible transfer as Israel is planning to connect settlements to Jerusalem.
Rising tentions in East Jerusalem are also portrayed here. The man on the picture is named Hussein and he is borned and raised in Old City, Jerusalem. He is neighbor with several settlements and fear that they one day will clame his home. He has a giant lock on his house an is always carrying his key around his neck.
Exhibition held during 2015
Ten faces, ten portraits of unique individuals. Each with a personal experience of being harrassed because of their pressumed origin.
Some more frequent than others and some less with words but more often with glares and rude
insinuationas. Some where glad to participate in this project and have never had the oppotunity to talk about their experiences of racism before. Others who where asked to participate had little to contribute to this project as their experiences of being approached with racist stereotypes were few. Others had much to tell, but had other experiences than is portrayed here.
“How to do describe the silent hatred that you see in someones eyes” said one. “What do you call ignorant comments that are not said with contempt but rather because of poor knowledge?” said another.
