GAZA PORT, Gaza Strip — Hundreds of faces reflecting hope, sadness, a sense of loss or anger look back at those visiting photographer Fadi Thabet’s open exhibition at the Gaza Port, west of Gaza City.

The 1,000 photos are the result of Thabet's work that spans over a period of 10 years, during which he took pictures in different parts of the Gaza Strip. On July 12-13, the large exhibition, organized and funded by the Palestinian Ministry of Culture in Gaza, occupied 1,000 meters (3,280 feet) of wall space.
