Nazar - Western eyes

Alison Bradley

BAZAARS OF THE OLD LEVANT (1999-2000)

Everything comes together in the bazaar: the small shops, the great trade routes, the ancient streets, the exchange of ideas and goods, the encounter between East and West. The American photographer Alison Bradley went in search of the bazaars of the old Levant (the coasts of Asia Minor, Syria and Egypt) and discovered the roofed markets of Aleppo, Cairo, Damascus, Istanbul and Jerusalem. She produced an atmospheric visual report on these traditional trading centres which still form the heart of Arab society, but are only rarely photographed. In order to emphasise the historical character of her search, Bradley worked with techniques that reach back to the first photographers who were active in the Middle East.
