Between 1975 and 1990 Lebanon suffered 15 years of civil war accompanied by distressing social, economic, physical and political ruin.
In the late 1990’s, photographer Jacky Chapman photographed the rebuilding of Lebanon through frequent visits documenting changes in central Beirut.
Her images depict daily life within an elderly care home in Beirut, exposing loneliness, isolation, fragility, and sometimes the inadvertent neglect of its inhabitants.
