Rula Halawani’s ghostly images capture the aftermath of the periodic violence that transformed her country into a war zone. Drawing on both her background as a photojournalist and her recollections of life under Israeli occupation, Halawani searches a now unfamiliar landscape for the fading traces of historic Palestine. Through the medium of photography, the spatial implications of occupation are reflected not only through the representation of political structures in the built environment, but more distinctly in the emptiness of negative spaces and shadowy illusions.
