Larisa Shaterian is a third year student at New York University's Gallatin School of Individualized Study, where her individualized major is Imaging the Middle East. Her work, "Palestinian Girls at Home," was shown last spring in "Prima Apparere: a collective work by Gallatin photographers," a group show at NYU. Shaterian’s ability with the camera together with her facility in speaking colloquial Arabic, give us an intimate introduction into the lives of the Palestinians she has met.
"Introductions" is a body of work begun this winter with Mohammed Farraj, a journalism student from Nablus. It intends to introduce the viewer to a few Palestinians. Like all first meetings, it is incomplete, because it takes a long time to properly get to know a person, however, although it is aware of the limits that photography, words, and geographical and political distance put on a relationship, this salutation hopes to be articulate.
