These images were taken while travelling through Israel & Palestine last year. I was intrigued by the significance of two major walls that can be found there, one being the Western Wall located in Jerusalem and the other the Separation Wall found on the border lands of the Palestinian territories. One wall is adorned with worshippers, the other adorned with images supporting the struggle against the occupation of the West Bank region. The significance of these walls has a profound effect on the people that live with them.
The top two images show a Jewish man praying at the wailing wall, his face turned toward the wall which offers him the right to freedom of expression and religious salvation and the promise of eternal life.
The bottom image shows a young Palestinian boy in a refugee camp in Bethlehem. His back turned towards the wall that surrounds his existence, a wall that restricts his right to freely travel and work and makes him a prisoner in his own land living under occupation.
