AREA A is a multimedia project inspired by our Spring Summer 19’ collection. It grew from the same seed as the designs: freedom of movement in Palestine. In it, we see and hear the dynamic, engaging personalities of the West Bank that exist in tension with imposed physical constraints.
As well as celebrating aspirational and creative young Palestinians, AREA A explores ADHISH’s unique cross-border production. Encompassing themes of movement, freedom of expression, and boundless creativity, Area A does not shy away from the reality of cultural and military oppression.
The project was cast organically with individuals and groups who were open to the ADISH approach, and it is the result of a month’s work on location in Palestine by Ryan O’Toole Collett and Sonya Carassik Ratty. The project was launched during Dover Street Market London’s ‘Photo London’ event In May 2019.
