This gruesome yet haunting photo is one of a series taken in Akkar last year by 23-year-old French photographer Constance Proux. The fruit of four separate trips to the north Lebanon region, where a friend runs Relief and Reconciliation for Syria, an NGO working with Syrian refugees, Proux's "Akkar" series aims to shed a personal light on the area and its refugee population. The photographs in the series are complemented by a loosely related series of texts, penned by Philippine and based on interviews conducted with the refugees with the help of translator Greg Shaheen.On her third trip to Akkar, Constance says, she spent a month in a Christian village, where she got to know a number of local families and was struck by the contrast between the peace and calm of the village and the political tensions destabilizing the wider area. The sisters intend to show the work as an installation, accompanying the photographs with scrolling passages of text on LED screens and a map showing the location of Akkar and its proximity to Syria.Months later, Fatima lives in Akkar, having fled her village after it was bombed.
