My work tells the story of 7000 Palestinian prisoners through the eyes of their mothers, wives and daughters.

In this picture:
Inaya Meziane (65) lives in the countryside near Bethlehem, mother of Mahamud (martyr) killed by the Israeli army during his arrest and mother of Hamed (36) and Ali (25) sentenced to two life sentences and 37 years and the other to 18 life sentences. For security reasons, nobody can go to visit them. The Israeli army destroyed their home 2 times.
Each life sentence corresponds to 99 years, every prisoner must discount his entire sentence and when a prisoner dies his body continues to serve the sentence. The body will be returned to the family only at this point. (image by Antonio Faccilongo)
