This is perhaps the most important and current photography project we have brought to you. In a week where the deaths of Palestinians in Gaza have capped one thousand, and the national and international press have, generally, provided a bias pro-Israel account of the “conflict”. Since the creation of the state of Israel in 1948 the native Palestinians have been forced out of the homes as the Israeli settlements have illegally and explosively expanded. In recent years Gaza has been surrounded by a wall, creating an open air, densely populated prison. People are unable to travel freely and more recently unable to flee the constant shelling from the Israeli Defence Force. All of this is done against international law, but solid backing from the USA allow them to do what they want. These images, shot before the most recent violence, show the struggles that Palestinians face daily and the apparatuses of power that are used by Israel to control them.

“Please do not enter the garden area”
This is a story about a circular land, a 250-metre wide strip that curls around Paris.
Contours is a study of the landscape that can be found in the banlieue of Paris. Drawing on the feeling of social optimism that was present in the area from the 1920s through to the building of the périphérique motorway in 1958, I am seeking to recreate a fictional green belt around the city. By looking at how a selection of ‘natural’ spaces are used, I am trying to figure out what remains of the original vision and suggest how the area might look today if things had played out differently. However, the reality is never far from sight.
I took these photos during the last two years of a five-year period living in Paris. What began as a nagging sense of curiosity, grew into an affinity with the landscape and an urge to tell a story, which would which would go beyond the stereotypes sometimes associated with the territory.
