Trackers is a series of photographs taken in 2005 depicting Palestinians of Bedouin descent who served or are serving as volunteers in the Israeli Army. The project is concerned with the price a colonized minority is forced to pay to the majority of colonizers, perhaps to be accepted, perhaps to change its identity, perhaps to survive, or perhaps all this and more.
