Al-Akhbar Management

Here is Sabra, where both Lebanese and Palestinians live. Here is where the brutal massacre of Palestinians by Lebanese militias took place in 1982, a stain on Lebanese history. But life here continues and the days go by slowly. Through his photos, Marwan Bou Haidar captures daily life here. In Sabra's markets you can find find anything, from perfume to clothes to watches. In this area where the state is absent, God alone takes care of the inhabitants. Nothing can describe the beauty of this area except for what the famous poet Mahmoud Darwiche said, "It is the intersection of two streets on the body/ Even the stones have spirit/ Sabra is not just one person/ It is our identity forever."
