Palestinian residents here often find it difficult to obtain medical treatment due to the proximity of Israeli settlements in this predominately Arab city.

Photography Exhibition

For those living anywhere near Swindon, I will be exhibiting images from the Old City of Palestinian Hebron at the Beehive on Prospect Hill.

Opening night is Sunday August 1st and the show runs until Saturday September 1st.

In most Arab cities the heart of the city is the Old City / souk area: traditionally vibrant, bustling and thriving with life. In Hebron, in the south of the West Bank, however, the heart of the city has been ripped out. Due to the presence of approximately five hundred militant IsraeliĀ  settlers and the soldiers who protect them, the souk of this important Palestinian city has become a virtual ghost town: it’s shops and businesses closed and homes abandoned.
