All good wishes for a Happy and Prosperous New Year!

My thanks to Rula Halawani for this intimate photograph of everyday life, amidst all the difficulties of the occupation.

Born in Jerusalem in 1964, Rula has exhibited around the world, including museums and galleries in the UAE, the USA and Germany. Her work can also be seen at the Selma Feriani Gallery in London.
