Notes

"old pictures look very rugged and young and the people in the photographs always seem a lot happier than you are"


Lebanese living day to day - why? -Look at the present day situation


Make images influenced from archives; not recreating the image but defining the style:

background

person

pose

outfit

medium

ratio

colour/bw


if I were to make images in the UK of Arabs "expressing their culture" in a British Landscape, would that be orientalist?


Using photography to document the generation changing history

> changing traditions, norms, fighting sexism, racism, radicalism - collating stories/beliefs
