The expression on this young man's face reflects the misery of the occupation, which has profoundly affected several generations of Palestinians. I placed him walking on the top of several pieces of concrete used by the Israelis to block off a street, and which display grafitti in both English and Arabic.

Overhead is the screen of wire, and a pile of settler refuse is in the background.
