Palestine Pleasures (Photographs) (Tanya Habjouqa)


“Palestinian Pleasures” is a project by Tanya Habjouqa,  a founding member of Rawiya — a collective of Arab women photographers. Photos and an essay describing the project appear at the New York Times. The photographs are lovely, but what about politics? The photographs stage everyday look with nary a look at anything Israel. No soldiers, no martyrs. The occupation remains part of the background but only a part. Since Electronic Intifadah gave the project a thumbs up, I think we’re okay here.
