Gaza Strip photo story

These pictures were taken by me in 1991 in the Gaza Strip. It was very hard to go inside as a photojournalist because both sides (Israeli and Palestinian) looked at me with great suspect. I finally managed to make it inside and I encountered great poverty. The roads were all smashed up and covered with mud. Children were playing next to the trash. It looked to me like a very very poor place to live an “open sky sewer” I remember writing when I came back with my assignment.  I do not know if things have changed now…I have not been back there ever since.
