"Too many times, we make judgements on people and situations without knowing anything about them... I decided to do a photography project, which is focusing on people, not the conflict, not the violence."

In this project he focuses on life and the people of the West Bank. He made several stories throughout the country.

In his presentation, ‘The Craftsmanship of the Kufiya’ Brian will tell us more about this traditional Arabic product that won his admiration.
