The 9th photographic collection in my Ramallah Walks series offers an odd mixture of nostalgia, film noir, intense light, vivid colour, and a sprinkle of politics. All these elements come together to offer a snapshot of this chaotic bubble called Ramallah– this lousy pretence to peace, affluence, and modernism. Ramallah is the terminal illness that has afflicted an otherwise-healthy 20 year-old who once had grand ambitions of a good life, a happy life. Yet miraculously this strange experiment works. The house of bubbles stands on thin sticks and life happens, in spite of all the bad things, life happens, with its beauty and grace, with its sparkle and colour. The rush of life is unstoppable.
