A Quote from Hell

Gaza has been under siege for over fourteen years, with more than two million Palestinians suffering the consequences of a continuous blockade on all aspects of daily life. “A Quote from Hell” focuses on one of these aspects: electric power cuts, where ad hoc solutions have been developed to contend with basic and daily power needs. Primitive and unsafe, these lighting solutions often result in tragic accidents. The project investigates the cases of children disfigured and injured by these ramshackle solutions.
