Silent Crisis (On life after imprisonment)
Category: Arab Documentary Photography Program
The trauma of detention is often overlooked. In most societies, the effect such trauma has on people is hard to conceive of. In a country like Lebanon, where human rights are still violated and conventions remain in a gray zone, society is unable to confront its own problems. This project aims to focus on this topic, on the challenges that prisoners face after they are released from detention, and the opportunities available to them when they resume their lives as efficient members of society.
