Gaza - looking back

Seventeen years of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Photographer Kai Wiedenhöfer documented life in the Occupied Territories. In the 1990s, he lived in the Gaza Strip and was known "Habib al-Shaab" - Friend of the People. He travelled with his cameras thousands of kilometres throughout the small enclave on his motorbike, observing changes over more than a decade. Wiedenhöfer speaks Arabic and relied on it for his work. He admits though that listening to frustrated Palestinians totally eroded the emotional distance usually expected of photographers.
