Fadi Thabit photo exhibit documents Gaza Life

A photo exhibit by art teacher and Gaza photographer Fadi Thabit offers insight into the daily lives of Palestinians living under the brutal occupation of Israel’s punishing military embargo

By Mohammed Asad

The art teacher and photographer Fadi Thabit recently organized a photo gallery of photographic portraits of Palestinian life on a stone wall along the Gaza Strip sea port.

Thabit’s exhibit  provides a fascinating perspective capturing the everyday life of Palestinian men, women and children surviving under the brutal occupation of Israel’s punishing military embargo.

The photos were collected over many years. The Gallery shows  aspects of daily life and how the locals dealt with life’s challenges and details.

Thabit believes that his selected photos show how the people love the life, how they challenge the siege, and how they manage in times of wars and losing many of their loved ones, friends and neighbors to Israel’s violence and settler driven terrorism.
