Throughout the month of September, photographs from the first annual Karimeh Abboud Award Competition will be on display. “Palestine: Unlimited” showcases photography works by ten young artists who employ a diverse approach in storytelling and use different mediums to create expressions about society and life in current day Palestine. The artworks presented in this year’s exhibition underline various types of photography, including experimental, abstract, conceptual and documentary.

The award is named for photographer Karimeh Abboud (1893-1940), who shattered stereotypes by becoming the first professional female photographer in Palestine, where she had studios in Bethlehem, Nazareth, Haifa and Jerusalem.
