This is the second edition with added pages.
This book features photographs taken by young Palestinian refugees living in Syria, who, for the duration of three weeks attentended participitory-photography workshops held by 'refocus.'
In Syria 3% of the population is Palestinian and they have been exiled since 1948. There are no immediate prospects for their return so they are caught between two lands which creates a difficult reality for young Palestinians who have great aspirations, hopes and dreams to fulfil.
This book offers a glimpse into their world through their eyes, showing coloquial life in the camps from their daily struggles to protests to how their mother cooks fish 'just as it should be'.
We are Kate Denman and Amy Coppins, two English girls with a love of photography and a fascination for the world. We have a great passion for meeting people and hearing their stories, which has taken us down the unusual route of teaching photography to young people whose voices are often not expressed, or given a platform upon which to be heard.
