Summer in Beirut. Journal
Essay, Klever 2020


with photographs by Leonhard Pill

 

Summer 2019. Robert Prosser travels together with the photographer Leonhard Pill to Lebanon, researching the local situation caused by the Syrian War. The experiences in Beirut or Balbeek evoke former travels, to Bosnia and Lesbos especially, to Srebenica and the refugee camps on the greek island.

Searching for lost and forgotten stories this Journal draws connections between places and people, thoughts and notes. It's about researching and writing, about travelling and the tragedy of the Syrian War, and it points out how the political mirrors itself in the private.
