5.0 out of 5 stars Eye-Opener!, 18 Aug. 2010
This review is from: Against the Wall: The Art of Resistance in Palestine (Paperback)
This is truly an exceptional piece of work and one which I highly recommended to any individual.

The saying goes `a picture speaks a thousand words', and it could not be more apt with regards to this piece of photojournalism. William Parry's book is a collection of images from the Wall which was first built by the Israelis in 2005 to divide Israel from Palestine and continues to grow to this day. The wall has become a Mecca for resistance art, with contributions from around the world journeying to Palestine to express their anger at its construction and illegality, using their talents to express their feelings. This book shows some of these provocative, intelligent, funny and heartfelt images (amongst them, the world's longest letter....literally) that are scattered all along the Wall, and shows Palestinian and World art united in a cause of condemnation.

Additionally, the book has images and stories of how the Wall has affected the everyday lives of ordinary Palestinians, and some of the struggles the Wall has caused to their lives.

This book is truly eye-opening.
