Palestinian photojournalist Motaz Azaiza - whose coverage of the war in Gaza captured worldwide attention - spent 107 days painstakingly documenting the war’s horrors. But Motaz didn’t set out to be a war photographer. Join the Committee to Protect Journalists to see Gaza through the eyes of an amateur photographer who went from documenting the beauty of his homeland to becoming its most celebrated chronicler of this most recent war. We’ll present a short video that traces the transformation of Gaza through Motaz’s photos and videos and examines from a personal perspective the terrible personal impact of reporting a war in your own home.

Please note that this is a change from the original programme. For personal reasons, Motaz Azaiza is no longer able to take part in the festival.

Organised in association with Committee to Protect Journalists.

Following this session, there will be an opportunity to join festival speakers and attendees to show solidarity for Gazan journalists in a group photo at 13.15.
