Tanya Habjouqa, a Jordanian / Texan documentary photographer,  tells personal stories that take place behind the scenes of conflict and war. Her images provide an intimate insight into the realities of those affected by the conflicts in the Middle East.

Her series "Occupied Pleasures" shows Palestinians during their leisure activities and tells of the search for pleasure and normality in the difficult reality of the occupied territories. In the series "Tomorrow There Will Be Apricots" Habjouqa portrays Syrian women who fled to Jordan at the beginning of the war and find themselves in a hopeless situation. The title is an Arabic expression that stands for the hope of something that will probably never happen.

On Friday, June 29,  2018, Tanya Habjouqa will talk about her observations and impressions of the difficult perspectives of people in conflict areas in the Middle East. In cooperation with the "COALMINE Forum for Documentary Photography", Keystone-SDA invited the photographer for a five-day masterclass and a discussion. The talk will be conducted in English by Monika Bolliger, Middle East correspondent for the Neue Zürcher Zeitung.
