Syrien. Erinnerungen an ein Land ohne Krieg

Live photo reportage: Syria. Memories of a country without war

 

Syria is a rich country. Historical, cultural, human. It has always been a hinge between the Orient and the Occident, a transit region for long-distance trade on the frankincense and silk road. Numerous peoples and religions have left their mark and made the area one of the most beautiful and important cultural regions in the world. The photo reportage directs our attention to the country and its people, with expressive pictures of the photojournalist Lutz Jäkel, created in the years before the outbreak of war. Photographs showing everyday life before 2011 show how to laugh and shop, work and eat, pray, smoke, discuss and celebrate in Syria. A picture that is both personal and broad – and a bridge full of hope and empathy.
