These photos are great as wassim said. They speak of so many things. The photo that actually reached to me the most was no.6 with the Lebanese flag. I feel it captures the current situation Lebanon is facing with the flag representing the country and the nation...

And some of the photos have much of an Orientalist touch to them. I don't know how familiar you are with Orientalists and Orientalist paintings but some of the photos here are very reminiscent of Orientalism. I like Orientalist paintings and work but it feels very plastic-like for me and somehow it bothers me... Yet again it depends on the subject of the painting.

Regardless, I loved this post ;)
