Samer Mohdad grew up not far from Beyrouth. For the last 30 years since he became a photographer he has wandered the street of the city in time of war, in time of peace.
He is the witness of history and of all the changes, of the rough passages of this city that was golden and privileged, where life was intense yet sweet that has been torn apart by wars at first local lebanese of one faith against another, then victim of the tensions from neighboring countries.
There was war then reconstruction, in spite of all this the women of Lebanon have remained beautiful, the artists creative. Life is stronger than anything. Yet the country is still looking to an uncertain future.
Samer photographed all the scars from the inside. He also write a story, his own in a very personnal way.
