1949 Armistice Agreement Line is a project that examines the borders of Palestinian Territory on Google Maps street view. While the area of Gaza is completely gray with inaccessibility, there are other areas in the region on both sides of these borders that are available for street view. These areas remain contentious "lines" drawn by Israel and its allies that keep Palestinian people shut off from any type of citizenry, advancement or national identity. In photographing these borders, I am exploring from afar only areas that exist to me in the political sphere, academia, and my imagination. I am exploring notions of identity along borders, a connotation implicit within the politico-social realm of the what it means to exist along these borders, to be separated by them and to subject to modes of classification.
