Palestine

I decided to analyze another art piece that i came upon earlier which has to do with Palestine yet again. I want to be able to remain connected to work that represents the conflict in Palestine and this photo which i found online does exactly that. Can a picture really be worth a thousand words? The visual captivates our generation more than the written word. As Paul Martin Lester once said: “Something is happening. We are becoming a visually mediated society. For many, understanding of the world is being accomplished, not through words but by reading images”. This image speaks to me. After what has happened in Gaza and Palestine, I almost teared just by looking at this photograph. The little kids haven’t lost hope and are more patriotic than ever (symbolized by the way they are raising their flag) although their home has been shot a thousand times. Luckily, these innocent souls are still alive and do not fear what is happening to their homeland. This photograph should raise awareness, and invite people to do something about the terrible situation in Palestine and I think the photographer has perfectly captured the moment. Image
