wonderWomen

(women from Gaza)

The project "wonderWomen" (the title has its roots in the Charles Multon's character " Wonder Woman") poetically portraits women from Gaza (Palestine) dressed with a super - hero cap.

It is an effort to glorify the qualities and humanity I have seen in these brave women.

I wanted to give voice to all the women in Gaza, genuine heroes  living in a very difficult context: high unemployment rates, war, limited women rights and dramatic gender inequalities.

I also wanted to get rid of stereotypical images of Gaza reality ( destroyed buildings/ poor people/ etc) and to catch photos of women laughing because despite all odds there is hope for peace and a better life.
