Photography-pigment print on epson enhanced matte paper

Edition 1 / 5



A Case Study in Visual Exploratio.

The Beirut Port Silos, comprised of two colossal structures, have loomed large over the city’s waterfront for decades. These cylindrical giants have been a constant presence, their imposing silhouettes etching themselves into the collective memory of Beirut’s inhabitants. As containers of grain and symbols of trade, they have stood as sentinels of the city’s economic aspirations and, more recently, as silent witnesses.
