A wall is covered with images. A little girl splashes in gray-scale puddles in the street, her image fuzzy in the moving shot. Framed nearby, a baker lifts hot flat bread out of the oven. A merry-go-round with three girls in headscarves swoops past the camera lens.

Welcome to the West Bank city of Nablus, as seen through the photographic lens of children.

“Suwarna” (Our Pictures) is an exhibition of images captured by the participants of a youth photography project led by Tomorrow’s Youth Organization (TYO), a Nablus-based non-governmental organization. The exhibit has been on display in Nablus and Ramallah for the last week.
