About this product
- DescriptionIn the early sixties, Marilyn Stafford spent over a year in Leban and became fascinated with the country and its people. She travelled extensively, journeying to the most remote villages and recording scenes of everyday life. This album is a selection of 140 of these outstanding photographs. Although there are some architectural scenes and views of towns and villages, the main focus is on the Lebanese people and their way of life: shopkeepers and souqs, weddings and religious festivities, cafes and night life, fortune tellers and street urchins...In her personal account of a vibrant society, Stafford reveals a land of contrasts - an intricate blend of east and west, tradition and modernity, which gave Leban its unique identity. Stafford's work is far more than a stalgic remembrance of a Leban that was. It is a beautiful and evocative photographic record of a society that is often misinterpreted and misunderstood.
