During the summer of 2011, armed with a camera and a map, award-winning Canadian filmmaker and photographer Afzal Huda set out to chronicle the separation Wall in Palestine. His aim was to magnify the ugly face of the Wall and depict the hardships endured by people living under a military occupation. He was intent on showing the world what it was like to live in an open air prison and the ways Palestinians developed to cope with the Wall’s existence.
Afzal spent weeks doing just that. But besides the overwhelming reality of misery and suffering he witnessed with his own eyes, his camera also caught images of a contrasting nature: photos of people and faces of compassion, perseverance and hope rarely seen in mainstream media’s usual portrayal of Palestinians.
The resulting book is a powerful photo journal that depicts the humanity of a resilient people. It is divided into four parts, each starting with a short introduction in English, Spanish, German, French, and Chinese followed by brief statistics taken from United Nation sources.
