We Decided To Let Them Say 'We Are Convinced' Twice.

A project from The Atlas Group Archive by Marwan Hanna In the summer of 1982, I stood along with others in a parking lot across from my mother's apartment in East Beirut, and watched the Israeli land, air, and sea assault on West Beirut.The PLO along with the Lebanese and Syrian allies retaliated, as best they could.

East Beirut welcomed the invasion, or so it seemed. West Beirut resisted it, or so it seemed. In 1982, I was thirteen, and wanted to get as close as possible to the events, or as close as my newly acquired telephoto lens permitted me that summer.

Clearly not close enough. This past year, I came upon the negatives from that time, all scratched up and deteriorating. I decided to take a look, again.
