For its 26th year, the International Festival of Photojournalism has once again selected more than 35 photographers to participate in its news and feature reporting competition.Shaaban will exhibit five photos he took of an Aug. 15, 2013, car bomb that exploded in Beirut's southern suburbs, killing at least 21 people. In the 2013 edition of the Perpignan contest, the Lebanese photographer had shown pictures he'd taken of an October 2012 bombing in Ashrafieh that had successfully targeted a security official and also killed at least three bystanders.In the 2012 edition of the IFP, Shaaban was the sole Lebanese photographer in the competition.It takes great calm to frame a photograph and Shaaban's pictures are noteworthy because – like so many news photographers – they portray the distress of situations Lebanese residents experience all too often.Hasan Shaaban's photographs will be on show in Perpignan's International Festival of Photojournalism from Aug. 30 until Sept. 14 .
