Part of a wider photography project by the artist entitled ‘Who turned the light off’, the images in this exhibition raise questions about demanding or advocating for that we simply have given up dreaming possible.

Rehaf is a self-taught photographer and visual artist who has lived through four major conflicts. Her work captures the essence of life, culture, and identity. Choosing to be creative in the most challenging of times is one of the highest forms of resistance and love. Rehaf too believes in the power of art as a source of healing and justice, and spends much of her time teaching photography to both youth and adults in Gaza, helping them simultaneously capture and process their extraordinary way of life.
