Through the eyes of the Lebanese Christina Malkoun

Country : Lebanon

Tags : Refugees, Palestine, Beirut, Photography

Beirut is Christina Malkoun's city: she works there as artistic director for the Arabic edition of Elle. The Burj el-Barajneh camp in the southern suburbs of the Lebanese capital is therefore not unknown territory to her. At times reporter, at times multimedia artist: her photographic work is multi-faceted. Here, Christina Malkoun focuses her lens on the Palestinian refugees of the Burj el-Barajneh camp. Her images recount the destiny of its inhabitants, the stigmata of war, the fleeting joys of the everyday existence of people awaiting a new life, in a city of cubes piled up one on top of the other.
