LENS ON SYRIA: A PHOTOGRAPHIC TOUR OF ITS ANCIENT AND MODERN CULTURE. Daniel Demeter. Just World Books, Just World Publishing, Charlottesville, 2016. 304 pp. with 424 col. ills. 25 x 24 cm. LC 2016-942708 ISBN 9781682570746 In English.
Publisher's description: Between 2006 and 2009, the talented young American photographer Daniel Demeter traveled broadly throughout Syria, amassing nearly 30,000 photographs of the country. Lens on Syria presents the very best of that collection. It offers a remarkable glimpse into the lives and landscapes of pre-war Syria, serving as an evocative reminder of the country's long history, rich heritage, and diverse culture, so much of which has been threatened or destroyed completely since 2009. By sharing more than 400 of his stunning images -- of Syria's warm and kindhearted people, vibrant markets, exciting landscapes, archaeological sites, historic monuments, and religious architecture -- Demeter gives readers a powerful experience of the beauty of a Syria that has seen, tragically, far too much destruction. Lens on Syria's high-resolution images are printed on high quality paper stock with detailed captions. Its seven chapters traverse all of Syria's major cities and historic sites along with many of the country's more remote and hidden treasures.
