Qantari, Beirut district

The Arab Image Foundation is an independent association forging new pathways for photography and image practices. Uniquely positioned at the intersection of artistic creation, research, and archiving, they explore, question and confront the complex social and political realities of our times. Their collection of over 500,000 photographic objects and documents from and related to the Middle East, North Africa and the Arab diaspora has been gradually assembled over the past 20 years by artists and researchers and through donations. With a critical and innovative approach, they collect, rethink, preserve, activate and understand these photographs through their multiple strata, and enrich their collection in the process.
