Description - In Hope and Despair by Mia Grandahl

More than 50 years after the establishment of the State of Israel, four million Palestinian refugees are still waiting to return to their old homeland, most of them living under harsh conditions in overcrowded camps in Occupied Territories and other countries in the Middle East. It is a wait that has now been passed on to a fourth generation. Between 1999 and 2002, Swedish photographer Mia Grondhal visited most of the camps in Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, documenting through a remarkable series of intimate, direct and powerfully honest images the lives of a people making the best of a "temporary" existence that has lasted over half a century, a people whose lives have been put on hold but who still have not given up hope that one day the world will listen to them and recognise their right to return.
