Urbex In Beirut: Beyond Photography

Urbex In Beirut: Beyond Photography

Sébastien Verlet, Caroline Brenière
Passionate conservationists from different backgrounds are squaring up to inaction from the government to protect historical sites and real estate developers who would rather see the immediate profit than what our protagonists see is their immeasurable historical wealth. Among the people trying to preserve Beirut’s buildings and historical spaces are Urbexers, a community of urban photographers that through pictures posted on social networks try to raise public awareness of the existence of these places and their abandonment to neglect.
