You should not seek beauty, but let beauty find you.Upon these are hung large-format photographs and collages of multiple smaller pictures – all capturing Lebanese landscapes set on white backdrops enclosed in light brown wooden frames.The photographer has experienced and witnessed something to which many other Lebanese – and people from other war-torn countries – can relate.Nowadays Asfar is a recognized photographer and videographer, having trained in still and moving imagery in Beirut and Paris.The strongest photo, I think, depicts Ain Hersha, the western slope of a hill that is part of the ring of summits surrounding Jabal al-Sheikh (Mountain of the Chief), known by some as "Mount Hermon".In the photo the mountain glows red as it rises from behind a craggy hill.I was born 20 years after Asfar, and I've asked that same question many times.
