Portraits from Gaza

15 September 2014 — The Electronic Intifada

Nasser al tatar gaza

Dr. Nasser al-Tatar, the director general of al-Shifa hospital, had been working twenty hours a day since the offensive started on 7 July when I photographed him on 14 July. The previous week, when he took an hour off to go home and break the Ramadan fast with his family, a neighbor came running with a warning that the doctor’s home could be bombed at any moment. “I prayed, ran out with my family to the street and watched my house be destroyed, then I came back to work,” he said, standing on the ruins of what used to be his home and private clinic.
