Send in the Clowns, Clowning around in Palestine 2011
I was lucky enough to be able to accompany a group of Clowns last year as they travelled all over the West Bank in Palestine to produce a documentary photography series showing the amazing work they do entertaining the children who are affected by the conditions and conflict surrounding them. I travelled with the clowns (three of them) for around three and a half weeks and in that time we covered a vast amount of the West Bank and met some of the most amazing people and saw and photographed some amazing things, as well as witnessing some terrible things and hearing some harrowing stories. This was an amazing experience, thanks to Jo, Sheila and China for allowing me to shadow them and basically adopting me for the duration of my time there.
