Eman Mohammed: What Lies Beneath the Rubble/Aftermath of War in the Gaza Strip

Photojournalism November 17, 2010 12:37 pm

Incredible work by Eman Mohammed on the Inge Morath site. In Eman’s words:

“One of the main goals in this project is to enter deeply, creating  a connected photographic story. Unlike a single photo or a sequence of single images, which are common in photojournalism, I am trying to express an alternative kind of story telling.

..This reportage documents the extent and nature of the aftermath of War in routine, daily life, as it effects women, kids, and men today in the Gaza Strip, who have faced in the relatively recent past – are continuing to face – the dangers of terror and war. I would like to examine both the immediate and long-term effects of this aftermath, as well as ways in which those hurt by it may begin the healing process. I would focus on the physical and emotional effects; particularly the mental side would surely be included.”
