Silent Faces

‘Silent Faces’ speaks of the brutal Israeli blockade on Gaza and the impact on the people and the landscape. In ‘Silent Faces’, clouds of smoke billow around buildings, resulting in highly emotive imagery. Al Dabous rarely depicts people in his work, however the atmosphere itself resonates human emotion.
