The Power of Culture


Fondation Arabe pour l'Image

The Fondation Arabe pour l'Image was established in 1996 in Lebanon with the objective of collecting and displaying the photographic heritage of the Middle East and North Africa. The collection currently includes approximately 50,000 photos and roughly covers the period from 1860 to 1970.
A large number of the collection’s highlights can be seen on the web site. There are many surprising images that fly in the face of stereotypes about the Arab world and bear witness to a very lively photographic culture.
