What if I Asked You to Imagine a News Photo from Gaza…

What if I asked you to imagine a news photo from Gaza, and then I told you:

It has a pair of hands disconnected from a body and also a body flying through the air.

It prominently features a separating wall.

It’s about an uprising.

… We should have such active imaginations.
