Holy Land is a selection from an ongoing personal series photographed in Israel, my mother’s homeland. I use the images to tell an amorphous story of culture clash and the intersection of Arabic and Jewish culture and the deep-rooted history of the country. I look both at pleasure and aching sadness. Through these images, I aim only to ask questions rather than to answer them.
