For most of the media, the Gaza Strip is a source of apocalyptic images from the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Striplife is an extraodinary depiction of the everyday life of Gaza’s inhabitants prior to the latest escalation of violence. Gaza from sunrise to sundown, in captivating images – with no need for commentary.


An inexplicable event has occurred during the night: dozens of manta rays stranded on the beach in Gaza City.Fishermen hasten from the whole Strip to grab some fresh meat.Meanwhile the city is awakening. Antar spurs his brother to get up, today is the great day, in the afternoon he will record his first disk. Noor puts her make up on, she must appear in front of the television cameras. Jabber is already in the field. The shots of the rifles remind him that he lives in the buffer zone that separates Gaza from Israel. A manifestation is going on in the streets. Moemen is there, doing his job as photographer. At the port a boat returns with the hull riddled by shots. The chant of the muezzin invades the space , multiplied by the minarets. As in a dream , the boys of the Parkour Team pirouette in a cemetery. Life in the strip winds up until night.
