Fadwa Rouhana is a Palestinian photographer born in Haifa and located in Bethlehem.
The lens is the window through which she tries to contemplate life and its meaning, how people are living it, their hopes and their hardships, their relation with their place and their environment, with their past and with their reality. It's her way to understand the whole human experience and to find her place inside it.
Her photographic work has developed through her own experimental efforts in a long journey with the camera. Being raised in a place shattered by hurdles and injustice, the camera became an existential necessity, her asset to connect to a reality that had always rendered her estranged and alienated, as a woman and as a human being.
