Sumud // Steadfastedness: Photographs from Gaza and Ireland

‘Sumud // Steadfastedness’ brings together three photographic projects about Gaza. Six children who witnessed massacres during Israel’s 2008 bombardment were tutored by Belgian photographer Asmaa Seba El Mourabiti. The result is ‘Gaza Seen By Its Children’, 24 photos that have been shown around the world. Beside this is ‘Obliterated Families’ by Anne Paq, whose subject is the extraordinary statistic that in the 2014 Israeli offensive 142 families in Gaza lost three or more members. Finally, Fatin Al Tamimi has documented acts of solidarity with Palestine in Ireland.

‘Sumud // Steadfastedness’ is part of PalFest Ireland, an arts festival run by Irish artists in support of Palestine. www.palfestireland.net
