Homeland

As these faceless Revolutionists follow one another towards an unknown destination, we are reminded of the ultimate goal of freedom fighters – to return to and protect their homeland. However, as they disappear into the distance, ghostly apparitions consumed by a muddy fog, we ask ourselves, to where are they returning?

Born in Gaza in 1973, in 1994, Ashraf Sahwiel holds a BA in Media and Public Relations from Al Aqsa University (2004). He has previously held positions such as the Director of the Gaza Association for Culture and Art, Chairman of ABNANA Development Association and Board Member of the General Union of Cultural Centres.
