‘Molatham’ is an Arabic verb which translates literally as ‘to cover ones face’, but is used vernacularly in Palestine to describe anybody resisting the Israeli occupation. Taking this as his starting point, Molatham is the culmination of a six year endeavour to archive the social practice of studio portraiture photography in the West Bank.
