My Gaza: A City in Photographs

Jehad Saftawi (Photographer)
Pre-Order   Ships Nov 17, 2020

Description

My Gaza offers a startling perspective on contemporary Gaza. Photographer Jehad al-Saftawi documents his life there up until his escape, in 2016. His eye is drawn to moments of humanity and tenderness that redefine this place beyond propaganda, beyond prevailing narratives. Through vivid images and captions--a gun to the head, an interrogation, a family in strife--al-Saftawi exposes a situation that cannot withstand further escalation. Urgent and resolute, My Gaza is the first book of its kind, presenting photos of present-day Gaza by a Gazan journalist.
