Nazar - Western eyes

Laura Junka

HAPPY IN GAZA (2003)

What do Palestinians from the Gaza Strip do during their vacation? Laura Junka asked herself that question during her study at the photo academy in Jerusalem. So she went to Gaza to record what people who are confronted with war and misery every day do in their free time. For instance, she went camping with the Abdoullah family, who thanks to a cease fire can go swimming in the sea for the first time in three years. HAPPY IN GAZA is a protest against the militant image of the Palestinian. Junka portrays the search for happiness as an act of resistance against the violence that has become an everyday event in the Gaza Strip.
