Where does the sky end? | Beirut, Lebanon

Beirut drills under your skin: a constant and piercing drilling sound that – in time – is absorbed by the surroundings becoming part of the city’s cacophony. A drilling sound that maps the construction sites scattered all over the city suggesting a frenetic vertical growth, towards the sky.

But where does the sky end?

“Where does the sky end?” is an on-going project of b/w analogue photography which aims to investigate Beirut’s multilayered urbanism and how the latter defines political inclinations, power dynamics and a reckless gentrification that’s changing the city’s landscape – often – at the expenses of cultural heritage. 

No human presence has been willingly portrayed in order to communicate the sense of estrangement, loneliness and alienation given by the loss of belonging to the urban surroundings.

    Ti ho ritrovato!!!
    Beirut ti entra dentro, misteriosamente. E … sì la sua cacofonia, forse è quello che spinge verso il cielo. Bellissimo il bianco nero, trasmette una extra-temporalità.
    Complimenti come sempre, e tanta sincera ammirazione.
    La Terra è piccola per una gatta irrequieta 😉

      Ciao cara!!
      Leggo solo ora questo messaggio! Son contenta che tu sia riuscita a “ritrovarmi”! Il blog non sarebbe stato lo stesso senza di te!
      Grazie per i complimenti. In effetti Beirut ti entra dentro e si agita nelle interiora.
      Ti abbraccio forte!
