Mourad | Palestine – photo essay –

A Palestinian olive tree is one of the oldest and most vulnerable trees; it is deeply rooted in the Palestinian land and has a long life span, which symbolizes strength and wisdom. Similarly, a Palestinian woman reveals her reverence through her traditional dress that reflects her values and heritage.

Palestinian traditional dress is the striking root of the Palestinian woman, allowing her to hold her present values without dropping the fruits of the past. In this sense, a Palestinian woman is distinguished by her traditional dress that creates a bridge between her past and present that shapes her identity. Like the olive tree, the Palestinian dress will flourish as long as we grant it more attention and care.
