    Emad Burnat, a Palestinian farmer living in the occupied West Bank, bought himself a camcorder after his fourth son, Gibril, was born in February 2005, and in addition to capturing the usual baby milestones he soon became the unofficial videographer for his village (located so close to the Israeli border that, in one shot, surveyors arrive to drop a separation line in the middle of Burnat’s land). more...
