    About The Work

    Photographer Lara Atallah investigates the role of the photographic archive in historical narratives, especially those of her hometown of Beirut. In this work, she raises questions about nostalgia and ritual by inserting a table set for Lebanese coffee and traditional ma'amoul pastries into a scene that appears to be taken from Lebanese golden age of the 1960s but is entirely constructed and collaged from several archival images. This invented landscape comments on the ideas of fabricated stories and faulty mechanisms of memory in a country that does not have an agreed upon history.
