Postwar Photographs of Lebanon by Amelia Opalinska

Amelia Opalinska and I spent nearly two months hitchhiking around Lebanon in the aftermath of the 2006 Israeli assault—a trip that is the subject of my political travelogue Coffee with Hezbollah, which also features Amelia’s photographs.

Following is a series of 22 black and white photos from various corners of Lebanon, reinforcing the notion that physical destruction and aesthetic appeal are not mutually exclusive.
