"After the horrific blast that destroyed much of the city that I love more than any other in the world, I feel I need to raise as much money as I can for the Lebanese Red Cross."

Why the Lebanese Red Cross?

The people of Lebanon have been battling an extremely corrupt government. The Lebanese Red Cross has no ties to politics and is secular. The government as of late still owes the Red Cross 1 million dollars. In the spirit of the fight against corrupt politicians. Who many believe are the cause of the explosion, it is best to only donate to the Lebanese Red Cross.

Une Femme

Une Femme is both an experimental novel and a photo book. The book tells the story of a reclusive elder gentleman who lives in Mar Mikhael one of the areas which was since then worst hit by the recent blast. When he encounters an artist who is intrigued by the man's beauty and mystery, a difficult friendship begins. Both have a history with war, yet they never speak about it. It is the elephant in the room in this 400 page book, containing 170 photographs of the now mostly destroyed Mar Mikhael neighborhood. It contains 170 pages of text (French) and 170 photographs. Printed uv-press Heidelberg on munken paper. Both English and Dutch translations are available and can be downloaded with your purchase. The book was made possible by the Mondriaan foundation.

Mr Khiar

is based on a Lebanese man with whom the artist became friends in Beirut. He wants nothing to do with politics. All he cares about is walks through the city and reading novels. At home, he takes care of the cats who visit him in the garden. One can not own a cat, one can only be friends with him or her."

Une Femme

« Parfois je regarde la lumière jaunâtre qui émane d’une fenêtre le soir. J’imagine une famille derrière cette fenêtre, et je me sens comme un enfant. »
Pause
« Protégé. »

Mr. Khiar

“Sometimes I watch the yellowish light that coms from a window at night. I imagine a family behind the window, and I feel like a child.”
Silence
“Protected.”
