Thousands of workers die every year on the world’s construction sites due to poor work and safety conditions. »Come back safely« portrays Palestinian construction workers, and it is dedicated to all the workers who left their homes and never returned, and to those who still set out every day to build a life of dignity.
 
Mohamed Badarne is a Palestinian photographer, trainer, and activist. He leads photography workshops in cooperation with NGOs, community centers, and independent groups, and his own artwork was exhibited in major venues, including the International Labor Organization in Geneva and the UN Headquarters in New York.
