Photographs and Notes by Larry Towell Poetry by Mahmoud Darwish Historical Essay by Ren Backmann
A gripping eyewitness account of the palestinian plight.
At the height of the Palestinian intifada in 1993, Magnum photographer Larry Towell trained his lens on Israel's displaced Arab populations living under occupation in the West Bank, Gaza, and East Jerusalem, and documented Arab-Israeli relations there over a period of five years. Then Palestine includes verse by the exiled Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish. French journalist Ren Backmann contributes a historical essay about an Israeli woman's poignant, strained relations with the former owners of her childhood home-Palestinians from whom the house was seized in 1948. Towell's Afterword includes excerpts from the journals he kept during his seven trips to the occupied territories between 1993 and 1997.
