Tanya Habjouqa: Women of Gaza

Artist Statement: In places like Gaza where the devastation is almost unimaginable, I am fascinated by the community spirit and elegance that prevails. Life continues, and so do the traditions and self-respect—a resistance to letting suffering be the standard definition. Women are continuing to care for their families, strive for education, and pursue careers. This is a work in progress, a look at the every day lives of women in Gaza.
