Spider-Man in Gaza

An 11-year-old boy has been photographed showing off his gymnastic skills against the bleak, rubble-strewn backdrop of Gaza, in a stunning series of images. The boy, Mohammed El-Sheikh, makes an unusual sight in the shattered coastal strip, which has been flattened by years of economic blockages and war.

His sombre expression is at odds with the bright blue and red of his Spider-Man costume, which stands out amid the grey rubble. He performs a series of stretches, splits and handstands among the broken staircases, crumbled walls and twisted metal girders that were once family homes and offices.

As can be seen in the photographs, Gaza is now a brutal and unforgiving wasteland for a young boy to call home. A United Nations report this month predicted that Gaza, which is currently home to around 1.8million people, would become uninhabitable in less than five years.
