Lebanon, and Beirut in particular, is the setting for completing any number of photography projects. Beirut is filled with street art and graffiti (if you're the kind of person that distinguishes between the two), and the idea that any surface is a canvas seems to have spread to other urban areas in Lebanon. I wish I had taken more pictures of the street art I saw, but this is what I have.
|My favorite piece of graffiti. It reads Beirut in Arabic, and coincidentally matches my dress. Perfect. Near Hamra Street.|
|First graffiti I saw on our first day in Beirut|
|Plz fix me|
|Mural in the Druze part of Beirut|
|Gemmayze again. Graffiti in protest to the widespread Turkeyfication of Western Armenia that has been described as a Cultural Genocide by the Armenian government. Martin is clearly distressed.|
|And this concludes my segment on "Martin standing in front of weird graffiti." This one was I think somewhere near Spear St.|
