From the collection of Diab Alkarssifi
Based on a collection of archival photographs from Lebanon and the Middle East that were taken and collected by Diab Alkarssifi. The archive includes images of everyday life in his home city of Baalbeck on the Syrian border and in Beirut, his student years in the early 1970s in Moscow and Budapest, and his collection of found images from studios in Baalbeck, Beirut, Damascus and Cairo – photographs of society, family and friends, and life in Lebanon, Palestine, Kuwait, Egypt, Syria and Iraq. The book includes photographs of the archival collection itself and new works by Ania Dabrowska, punctuated by short exchanges between Dabrowska and Alkarssifi on the history and making of the images and stories collected here. Includes essays by Ania Dabrowska and Akram Zataari. Designed by Kelly Weedon.
