Mia Gröndahl visited Artas for the first time in1997. After having seen anthropologist Hilma Granqvist’s photos from the village, she decided to follow in her footsteps. Mia Gröndahl has photographed the village and its people, with a special focus to find the same people who were photographed by Hilma Granqvist. Gröndahl’s work resulted in an exhibition that builds a bridge between the then and now of Artas.
The exhibit was produced in cooperation with the Finnish Institute in the Middle East, and has been shown in Palestine (Bethlehem and Artas), Amman, Jordan, Finland. 2000.
