Picture Balata

July 14, 2007

Photography as entry into a deeper understanding of identity, history, and struggle. Photography as expression, but also as a practice of self actualization. We talk with Matthew Cassel, founder of the project, Picture Balata, about educating the least among us, and the role that images play in a vanishing culture struggling to remain. Picture Balata teaches Palestinian youth of a refugee camp how to express in images, the Palestinian experience.

This is not a political show, but all messages expressed in images share certain things in common. Clearly, photography as part of a political struggle is a long tradition. All comments and suggestions are welcome.
