Join us for a presentation of a special book of photographs from Palestine by Federico Busonero and Giovanni Fontana Antonelli.

The Palestine I visited remained elusive, transfixed in the stillness of its own time. I felt almost like an intruder as I approached the contradictory present topography and demanding past contained within: places of great weight and history, places of many recorded and unrecorded memories, places resonant with human suffering and dignity.
— Federico Busonero

The Land That Remains is an elegiac exploration of  a culture and epic civilization vanishing into a cyclically wounded landscape. Originally commissioned by UNESCO, Federico Busonero made three extensive photographic journeys throughout the West Bank of the occupied Palestinian territory in 2008 and 2009. Using a traditional camera and unmistakably, his heart, he created pictures that illustrate culturally important, rarely seen places in the topography of Mashriq – the “places of sunrise” to the east of the Nile – villages and cities with extraordinary heritage, pastoral rolling hills and ancient olive groves, fertile wadi ecologies, sacred desert cemeteries, and vanishing millennial archaeological sites. A critical, yet neutral gaze, sheds light on the impending loss of Palestine’s cultural legacy – images of today’s broken history being occupied forcefully by another’s reality – reflecting visions of hope sacrificed, in the land that remains.
