Series Name: Check Point 300; (in)human borders
Series Description: Every day, before sunset, thousands palestinian workers spend between 2 and 4 hrs clumped togheter to cross the so-called "CheckPoint 300", that divides Bethlehem and Jerusalem, in order to go working in Jerusalem and surrounding areas. The images presented are realized with instants taken from more than 30 different pictures realized at CheckPoint 300, and the purpose of the series is to represent the inhuman conditions in which these people are forced daily to get their right for a job. If these images are result of a creative composition, hence not real, what is real is the sense of oppression that they aim to represent.
