Palestinian photographer Belal Khaled, 23, has been photographing the violence in Gaza since fighting between Hamas and Israel escalated July 8. But it was the plumes of smoke left by Israeli air strikes that captivated his artistic eye, he told BuzzFeed.

Khaled said he has since been too busy to continue making the art.
