By gathering old pieces of newspaper, magazine and scraps of paper- remnants of the past- Mohammed Lubbad rearranges this material into imagery that portrays a pivotal point in the history of the Palestinian people- their transference in 1948. Lubbad’s method reminds us of the importance in piecing together information,  as doing so ensures a holistic view of a story.
