Najib Joe Hakim's project "Home Away from Home: Little Palestine by the Bay" juxtaposes recorded oral histories with black-and-white portraits. The project uses the resources of storytelling and image to explore the Palestinian diaspora, and in particular the ways Palestinians in the Bay Area maintain ties to their homeland while living in a country whose political culture runs counter to their personal aspirations.
