Publisher's description: A chance encounter in a homeless hostel between Polish artist Ania Dabrowska and Lebanese journalist Diab Alkarssifi led to the discovery of Alkarssifi's collection of 27,000 photographs from Beirut, Damascus and Cairo covering over 100 years of Arab history. Complemented by the journalist's previously unknown personal photographs of everyday life in Beirut, his home city of Baalbeck on the Syrian border, and his student years in the early 1970s in Moscow and Budapest, this treasure trove is an extraordinary record of modern Arab history. Dabrowska designed the book to preserve and re-present to the public a century of cultural and political history in Lebanon and the Middle East. Internationally known for her multimedia and photography projects, Dabrowska's work is underpinned by a long-standing interest in memory, identity, social engagement and collaborative processes. A Lebanese Archive is an electrifying historical record featuring an essay by artist Akram Zaatari and over 100 images from the archive.
