presents the Book: "Lebanon
Beauty Beyond Belief"
After 35 years
of covering conflict as a photojournalist, I decided to capture
the other face of Lebanon; a face of beauty that I only came to
see the importance of once the civil war was over. Because of
my wife, Samar, who explored the country with me and inspired
me to capture what we were discovering, I began to take more pictures,
until I had the dream to one day create a book that would share
our vision of a beautiful Lebanon with the Lebanese, and, hopefully,
the rest of the world.
In 2012, my son Ayman and his wife Karah encouraged me to pursue
this dream. They brought my pictures to life, creating a visual
journey through Lebanon's beauty. As a photographer who held my
camera in his hands from the time I was a child, Ayman contributed
his photos, bringing the perspective of two generations into the
book. As a writer with a profound love of Lebanon, Karah contributed
her words, weaving the images together through a poetic story
of beauty and adventure.
Through our teamwork as a family, we achieved a result that I
hope will inspire others to appreciate the unique and remarkable
beauty to be found in Lebanon. We hope to always see Lebanon living
together in harmony as it is living together within the pages
of this book, which aims to reflect a colorful image of the country
that blends the countless natural, traditional, historical, cultural,
spiritual, and social elements that create such a wonderful place
of diversity. This diversity is the key to Lebanon's true beauty,
and it is only by taking pride in and appreciating this rich diversity
that will ever reach true peace and real progress as a nation.
This book is a labor of love, and each picture means something
special to us. Through this book, we hope to bring people closer
to Lebanon, whether they are visitors from abroad or Lebanese
living here or far away, longing to show family and friends the
all-encompassing beauty of this country. It is for these people
as much as for ourselves that we strived to capture Lebanon as
a whole composed of so many beautiful parts. For this is how we
see Lebanon and how we want others to see that even after all
of the conflicts and wars, our country is still so full of beauty
- beauty beyond belief.
