Description
A portrait photographer who has created memorable images of Indira Gandhi, Albert Einstein, and Italo Calvino, Marilyn Stafford spent more than a year in Lebanon in the early 1960s and became fascinated with the country and its people. She traveled extensively, journeying to the most remote villages and recording scenes of everyday life. This album presents 120 of these outstanding photographs, including architectural subjects and views of towns and villages, yet the main focus is on the Lebanese people and their way of life: shopkeepers and street urchins, weddings and religious festivities, and cafés and night life. Stafford's work is far more than a nostalgic remembrance of a Lebanon that was; it is a beautiful and evocative photographic record of a society that is often misrepresented and misunderstood.

"The photographs are beautiful and evocative ... a photographic historical record of the Lebanon during post-World War II."—Digest of Middle East Studies
