Memories of Imagined Places is a work of photographic and textual historiography. It centres on memories of Palestinian villages that existed before 1948. The photographed sites were selected on the basis of young Palestinians’ inherited memories of their families’ villages being destroyed and depopulated. The 11 villages in the former districts of Jaffa, al-Ramlah, Gaza, and Hebron were located with help from researcher and writer Noga Kadman. Hasager then travelled to the destroyed villages to produce new images of what remains of these places.
