The signing of Beirut Footsteps, the photography book of Marie-Noëlle Fattal, was held on Independence day at Liza Restaurant in Ashrafieh.
“Beirut Footsteps is a poetical and visual wandering in the streets of Beirut. This publication features a selection of posts from my Instagram account Beirutfootsteps published between March 2016 and March 2017”, explains Marie-Noëlle Fattal. “I wanted to capture this city that we love, its inhabitants, its light, its graffitis, its balconies, its narrow streets, its memory that vanishes slowly but surely.”
With its yellow and blue cover and its light format, this publication is a colorful walk in the town throughout the seasons. Part diary, part photography book, Beirut Footsteps invites us to discover Beirut through the eyes of its author.
