In the midst of a devastating military bombardment and continuing economic blockade, the people of Gaza are still demanding freedom. Palestinians complain that media attention has focused disproportionately on Gilad Shalit, an Israeli soldier captured by Hamas in 2006, while US media and politicians rarely speak out about the more than 11,000 Palestinians held in Israeli prisons, almost half of them without charges.
The prisoners come from all walks of life, from children and the elderly to members of the Palestinian Legislative Council, the democratically elected government.
Prisoners of Gaza features family members of prisoners, government representatives, and street protests, all of it shot from May-June in Gaza.
