Description

“Seen from outside, the Arab world looks like a powder keg, ready to explode at any moment, and Islam seems to be the dominating power. Seen from inside, everything is different,” writes Lebanese photographer Samer Mohdad. This photojournalist’s desire to present the view from inside led him to focus on long-term projects that document the everyday lives of people rather than more sensational, saleable images of the violence raging in the region.
