A Palestinian teenager in the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh uses a sling to hurl stones at Israeli soldiers amassing at the bottom of the hill. Every Friday local residents, Israeli activists and international activists gather in the village to stage non-violent demonstrations denouncing the Israeli Occupation and asserting Palestinian human rights. The protesters are met each week with tear gas and other aggressive crowd dispersal tactics, transforming peaceful demonstrations into violent exchanges of stones, rubber bullets and mass arrests.
American photographer Adam Golfer’s images of the West Bank look beyond the hurly burly of one of the world’s intractable conflicts.
