St John's Eye Hospital
This work focuses on the St John Eye Hospital in Jerusalem. The hospital provides special ophthalmic care to the residents of Jerusalem and is the only hospital offering this service to Palestinians in the West Bank. In the occupied Palestinian territories the rate of blindness is ten times higher than in the West. This is partly down to the restrictions on drugs and access to healthcare services imposed by the Israeli government on the residents of the West Bank. Through photographing the activities of the hospital the project looks at the inequalities coming from decades of conflict in the area.
