Network of Photographers for Palestine
Home Away From Home
Monday 09 to Sunday 15 August
Opening night: Monday 09 August, 6 – 8pm
The Deep End, 21 Nithsdale St (Venue 5)
Opened by readings from Liz Lochhead and Iyad Hyatley on the 9th, plus a Q&A with the three photographers all of whom hope to be in Scotland.
“Home Away from Home” is an interactive photographic exhibition in which Palestinians from three countries Scotland, Germany and USA relate their experiences of exile.
This event was inspired by the work of San Francisco photographer Najib Joe Hakim and Edinburgh’s Craig Maclean, both of whom had independently explored themes of exile, loss and identity in separate exhibitions previously.
The Network of Photographers for Palestine brought them together with German-based photographer, Ursula Mindermann to produce this intriguing portrayal of people whose homes are now far away from their homeland.
