Children from Al-Shati Refugee Camp in the northern Gaza Strip surround one child palming a small bird.
I have very little to say about this photograph except that I look forward to the day when I can order it as a large print and hang it on my wall. Smiling children, the classic V-for-victory hand sign, a small bird nestled in a child’s palm, graffiti in the background, a reminder of resistance, blur, graininess, action. What’s not to love about this image?
