“Hope or hopelessness, trapped or free, emigrating or remaining in Gaza, ignored or noticed by the world, Israel held accountable for possible war crimes (along with militant political elements in Gaza) or will the impunity continue?—these questions constitute the main themes of my new photographic presentation about Gaza. Based on my work photographing and teaching photography for one month in Gaza during the summer of 2009, my 4th trip to that sorely afflicted region, I portray how conditions have deteriorated. Hope for many has disappeared. People, especially those young or moderate, have no voice and often attempt to leave, only a few successfully. While others remain, like the steadfast—sumud is the Arabic word—Dr. Mona Al Farra and others I profile in my latest show.”  – Skip Schiel
