joana hadjithomas + khalil joreige

joana hadjithomas + khalil joreige's 'wonder beirut: postcards of war' project: "a selection of pictures taken between 1968 and 1969 then burned between 1975 and 1990 by the photographer depending on the shelling and destruction caused by armed conflicts. by publishing and distributing these images, we are trying to fight the trend which puts the lebanese civil war between brackets and includes the lebanese conflict only marginally in our contemporary history, and which prefers to idealise the past and project itself into an uncertain future." see more here.
