 Omran Shadid, a strawberry farmer near the northern West Bank town of Jenin, takes a cigarette break. Strawberries came to the West Bank in 2009 and Omran invested in them because "The appearance is attractive," he says. "It gives you nice art, good price and a good time."

 Ahmad Yaseen, 22, in Asira al Shamaliya says 50 years since the 1967 war doesn’t mean anything special to him. “I think of everyday as a day to remember the occupation,” he says. “The purpose of the anniversary is to say ‘Okay - What am I going to do about it?’” What Yaseen decided to do is to make art. His latest is a portrait of Om Aseer Shahib, mother of a prisoner who died in prison two months ago. From a series of portraits commemorating the 1967 War.

 A West Bank liquor store, but if you look closer you'll see boys' passport photos lining the shelves. The boys in Taybeh want to go to America so they bring their pics to Sarri, a US citizen and owner of this shop. He moves the pictures from the bottom row to the top when the boys leave for the US.
