"Before leaving the UK, my online research suggested there was no such thing as everyday life in the West Bank. According to the images, I could expect only violent protests, demolished homes and masked youths throwing stones through clouds of teargas. Whilst sadly I did encounter these things, the balance between explosive violence and mundane, everyday life was quite the reverse of how it’s portrayed in the bloodthirsty media. This piece aims to show the unreported other side - dazzling sunsets, the evening call to prayer, washing drying in the breeze ready for school the next day, an old woman picking some mint to make tea.. I suppose the message is that beauty and peace can always be found if you know where to look."
