Portraying human diversity

It is easy to forget the individual human being when discussing the situation in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories. Before visiting the area with our photography class at Krogerup Folk High School in April 2016, we heard a lot about occupation and conflict. But travelling there it was the people and their everyday life that affected us the most. We focused on portraying the diversity we met on the streets of Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Hebron and Nablus.
