Ammar Abd Rabbo's book launch
Alep, A Elles Eux Paix
December 2016
Ayyam Gallery Beirut is pleased to announce the launch of Alep, A Elles Eux Paix, a new artist book by Paris-based Syrian artist and photojournalist Ammar Abd Rabbo. As the first publication to document war-torn Aleppo, Alep, A Elles Eux Paix features recent photographs that record life in the devastated city, capturing the rarely-seen experiences of its besieged inhabitants. In compiling the book’s images, Abd Rabbo turned to a small group of friends—artists, writers, scholars, journalists, and activists—who each selected a work and provided written commentary. Consequently, in many ways the book is a collaborative effort between individuals who have personal and professional connections to the Syrian city.
