“Human Drama in Gaza” is a gripping photo exhibition about the realities of life in the Gaza Strip under war and siege.
At its core, “Human Drama in Gaza” is a story about human beings seeking to find dignity and hope as their world is destroyed around them. The exhibition features 44 photos, taken before, during and after the 22-day assault on Gaza by professional photographers from Israel, Palestine, and the West. The photographers whose work is featured caught simple everyday events in Gaza. Yet given the extreme circumstances in Gaza, these otherwise normal scenes take on a shocking new poignancy.
Through this Exhibition, Canadians will discover their shared humanity with distant brothers and sisters in Gaza, and will inevitably come away with a new compassion for the people of this tormented land.
Presented by the Canada Palestine Cultural Association (CANPAL), Palestine Solidarity Network, and Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East-U of A.
Exhibit produced by Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East (CJPME).
