COLLECTION 1983

Posters 

Plan Bey selected 8 photographs from the series Collection 1983 and created a collection of posters to bring the images back to the walls.

70 x 100cm
Inkjet print on Fabriano Palatina paper
Available at Plan Bey in Beirut and B/B Multiples in Berlin

In a former wood factory, abandoned during the Lebanese civil war and occupied by militias, the raw concrete walls became a canvas for the soldier's hopes and dreams as fighting raged around. 
Locked away and neglected, these palimpsest images offer a snapshot into the minds of forgotten soldiers.
