The 29-year-old Asad has already placed First in a Disaster Award and competition in Gaza, Third place in a Best Picture award at the Palestine Foundation for Culture in Beirut, Second place in the Sharjah Prize for Arab Image Press Photo category and another Third place award in an International competition held in Saudi Arabia.

 

The Israeli siege on the Gaza Strip has affected all aspects of life and Asad responded by shining a light on the resident’s creative solutions.

Palestinian electrician Hassan Saeed developed a lighting circuit to illuminate the streets and 60 homes in the Al-Shejaea neighborhood in the Gaza Strip using LED panel lights and old car batteries.
Supported only by individual donations, Saeed covers the cost of the necessary wires and LED panels so the people do not have to use candles and homemade electricity inverters that have caused fires which claimed many lives.

Asad also captured this “turning point in the history of the Palestinian people” after Fatah and Hamas reached the historic agreement to end their differences and form a unity government:

Asad’s work has been exhibited in Asian and European countries.

If Asad’s work featuring the children of Gaza Palestine is viewed in America; it could well change the facts on the ground for the 1.657 million human beings who have been trapped on 139 sq miles.
