Born in Lebanon in the aftermath of a fifteen year long civil war (1975-1990), I was raised in an environment where history has always been an unspoken of taboo. The project “Tales of a non-country” is an exploration of the glorified era of the pre-war years where people have often used photographs of that time to tell the stories of a city they perceived as a utopia.
