Beirut, is that you?

A photography exhibition by George Haddad opening on the 30th October.

An unreal atmosphere grasps us, a chimerical story tells itself as the concrete rises, as the electrical wires vibrate and the neons sparkle. Is it really a city? Beirut, is that really you? Or are you but a mirage of a fantastical city whose heart beats through the colors of night and dust.
Distant plans invite us to a sort of large-scale voyeurism where every window, every door, every building, every street corner seem to be ready to reveal an intimacy. And yet, not a living soul… It is as if the city had taken over humans and became human itself in some kind of surreal anthropomorphisation. It is as if the city was breathing, conversing, looking at us. And now Beirut is waking up in a new dimension, orchestrated by a ballet of magical lights, like urban fireflies, coming straight out from another world.
