Sary Zananiri gave the talk Reproducing the Image: Photography, Modernity and the Biblical in Palestine at the Al Ma’mal Foundation for Contemporary Art in Jerusalem Palestine on the 15th March, 2019.

This talk looks at the ways in which Palestine was imaged and contrast this to ways in which Palestinians themselves took on photographic processes.  In doing so, it attempts to contextualise the disjuncture between Western-authored images and those of Palestinians themselves to consider the ways in which modernity produced and reproduced itself through image.
