This book is a tribute to Myrtle Winter-Chaumeny. A photographer who devoted her career to documenting the lives of Palestinian refugees, Winter-Chaumeny was responsible for establishing the largest archive on the refugees life in the second half of the twentieth century. The photo archive of the UNRWA is a record that has preserved images of refugees from the start of their experience in uprooting and exile, through the many wars they endured and the harsh living conditions of their quotidian existence in the many camps. Authors from dif-ferent backgrounds contributed to this volume to celebrate the photographic legacy of a photographer, her achievements, and the subject of representation: the Palestinians.
