Aleppo the white: land of marble and milk

Images talk and tell stories.

 

I would like to tell you the story of a country riddles with bullets and scars, but where life overflows from the rubble. 

 

In the media, today’s stories are forgotten tomorrow.                                                In the winter of 2016, whereas the bombs were raining on Aleppo, I travelled to the city to try to make sense of a senseless situation.

In this book, I want to shed light on one of the darkest chapters of the Syrian tragedy and the harm it has caused to a country and all its citizens.

 

Far from being an epitaph to a great city that was once a cornerstone of the Silk Road, this book is a plea for its revival. 

 

                                                     -----------

 

Through my photos and those of Catherine Ward, a young photographer from Aleppo who has never wanted to leave her hometown, this book immortalizes the damages caused by the war to the city and its inhabitants.  
From our respective experiences, comes a dialogue between texts and images which pays tribute to anonyms which have names, stories, dreams and fears, and who can only count on their willingness to live to survive. 

 

More than a testimony, "Aleppo the white: land of marble and milk” is about remembering the people we’ve crossed paths with, the people who have stared death in the face but continue living with their heads held high.
