KARAMA Initiates Palestine Photo Project
Ramallah Woman

The KARAMA Palestine Photography Project reproduces archival high quality images of historic pre-1948 Palestine for exhibition worldwide.

Based on more than 22,000 photographs in the Library of Congress Matson Photograph
Collection, the Project selects images taken during the British Mandate period of Palestine's history with a goal of making them available for public exhibition at galleries, libraries, museums and other appropriate venues.

The Matson collection is a treasure trove of images of pre-1948 Palestine. They make clear that Palestine was not "a land without people" but, rather, a place with a sophisticated culture populated by people with a clear sense of self-identity.

You can find out more about the Palestine Photography Project here.

Also, Kararama has published a book containing more than 50 selected reproductions. For information about buying the book, click here.
