Paul Blackmore

BEIRUT (2002)

According to Paul Blackmore, there is no other people who know as well as the Lebanese how cities rise and fall. After sixteen years of civil war the name of Beirut was synonymous with death, violence and destruction. When a peace was finally signed in 1990, there were only ruins left. The Lebanese capital, which had been known for its toleration and culture, had been changed into a hell on earth. One third of the population had fled and hundreds of thousands of residents had been killed. In the decade which followed the one-and-a-half million residents of Beirut worked hard on rebuilding the city. Twelve years later Blackmore photographed a city which has literally arisen from the ashes.
