Christians in Palestine

This photographic work documents the situation of the Christian minority in the Palestinian occupied territories.

After decades of demographic decline, the Christian communities now represent less than 2% of the population. This work deals with the social reality of these groups, their mechanisms of self-assertion and cohesion, the role of socialization centers and the specific problems arising from their isolation. Secondly, we see the external support these communities by the churches to which they are associated. Support, through NGOs and religious orders, which represents an essential part of Christian presence in the area. Finally, we analyze the phenomenon of pilgrimages to the Holy Places of Christianity by foreigners from all over the world, its development and impact on local communities and their attitude to the observed reality.
