Author Presentation: Kevin Bubriski

February 15, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

This book of photographs captured before the civil war of ancient sites in Syria documents not only their beauty but their temporality, as the vast majority have been destroyed in the subsequent years of unrest.

Legacy in Stone: Syria Before War is a collection of 100 black-and-white photographs taken throughout Syria in 2003, immortalizing many important ancient sites which are now no longer there due to the still on-going Syrian civil war. Kevin Bubriski was on assignment in Syria in 2003, during the infancy of the U.S. war in neighboring Iraq. He was photographing the country’s ancient monuments, as well as documenting the daily lives and ordinary human stories of its citizens. Unbeknownst to him, within the decade, a war would break out in Syria, and destroy or damage much of what he had photographed.
