Thinking with Rym

For some reason I could not figure out what this picture illustrated. A submarine I first thought. Then, many other things came to mind: a blown out mushroom, a volcano. This picture is in my opinion one of the most extraordinary image of this war’s aftermath.

Rym (who was first to discover that the village of Ghajar was staying in Israeli hands) send it to me with a little text:

I added a photo of the oil containers hit by israel in Jiyeh that caused one of the biggest environmental disasters….and you can’t imagine the smell….
everything around the flattened tanks was coated with oil..and dead…..the grass, the trees, the animals, and the soil…
standing close to death….we are reminded of life..and how much time is wasted on unworthy things..
