Dhehesheh Refugee Camp (1955) and Doha City (2012)

Palestina 2012
Photomontage: BraveNewAlps, Campus in Camps

This image was produced by juxtaposing and overlapping a picture taken in 1955 (left side) and a picture taken in 2012 (right side). The left side shows Dheisheh Refugee Camp made of tents in 1955, while the right side presents Doha City, a neighborhood lying outside the camp borders and built by Palestinian refugees. Doha was named in honour of the capital of Qatar, the country which partially financed its construction. It is a refugee city that works virtually as an independent municipality, yet remains physically and politically linked to the Dheisheh via a bridge and social networks respectively.
