Surprise!: Photo Jack Imaging Lebanon's Passers-by, Public and Private Lives
The Photo Jack collection, held by the Arab Image Foundation (Lebanon) comes from the Photo Jack photography studio (1939-1997 in Tripoli, Lebanon) and includes different photographic practices ranging from photo surprise in public space to reportage from private events. The images show the diversity of northern Lebanon and its communities across religious, ethnic, cultural and class lines. The project will focus on digitizing the collection's Film Drawers which contain 1250 rolls of 35mm film and constitute approximately 45,000 photographs.
