Bijanibiha is a long term project started in 2012 on women’s Palestinian resistance into the Gaza Strip.
Bijanibiha in Arabic means “by her side”.


This is a work by a male photojournalist documenting the conditions of the women into the Gaza Strip in times of change in the political game of the parties in the Palestinian Israeli matter. A resistance that from the front line has pervaded into the social fabric and that is now part of the everyday life, to fight back social annihilation and protect their dignity.
