The Great March of Return

 

Steve Sabella

The Great March of Return is a collage of over one thousand photographs captured by five award-winning Palestinian journalists from Gaza of the crowds who gathered every Friday from March 2018 for eighteen months to end the never-ending Israeli Occupation. Sabella contrasted these images with photos of outer space, merging the hermetically sealed Strip with infinity. This monumental “present-day fresco” demonstrates a nation’s eternal fight for liberation.

Between fires, smoke bombs, death, and destruction, the great circle connects to Renaissance art, creating a "space without borders" that makes one think of a sort of a Palestinian Sistine Chapel, containing a message of rebirth. Sabella uses colors in photographic images how the painter uses his brushes and palette. The assembled photos create a new world, "a reality within reality, a journey to the beginning and end of time."

Mohammed al-Assad | Mural of The Great Return Steve Sabella - On a Journey to the Beginning and the End

The Great March of Return, which resembles a mural painted on a “space without borders”, is by the Palestinian artist Steve Sabella. Some who saw it for the first time said that it is the Palestinian Sistine Chapel, resembling the heavenly ceiling by the Italian painter Michelangelo.
