Pellegrin’s Palestine: The Vastness of Space.

I’m more interested in a photography that is ‘unfinished’ – a photography that is suggestive and can trigger a conversation or dialogue. There are pictures that are closed, finished, to which there is no way in. ”
That is how Paolo Pellegrin describes his aesthetics in the world of photography. He’s an Italian photographer, winner of many awards, Magnum photos member and a photographer for Newsweek for many years now.
I adore his Palestine photo series. I love the sense of space, the vastness of it. It may suggest doomsday, but it can also offer a chance for something good waiting somewhere around the corner (being built from scratch). You never know.
Enjoy the photos.
