The Shoe Factories of Hebron, Palestine

The Shoe Factories of Hebron

In November 2016, I travelled to Palestine/West Bank to experience the culture and people. Especially I was interested in learning about their life, and how they deal with the constant tension present throughout the region. I developed an incredible interest in their Shoe Factories. Throughout the city of Hebron, there are approx. 50 shoe factories. The places are filled with character and people who have experienced a lot throughout their lives.

This project is not completed. However, I wanted to show what I have been able to capture within that month. In September 2017, I will be travelling back, focussing on the Shoe Factories, especially on the people working; as up to now, I don't have a multitude of portraits which are however necessary to tell the story.
