There is nothing like seeing the world from the air – the houses and roads reduced to dots on the horizon."In the Clouds," a selection of black-and-white aerial photographs from the Fouad Debbas Collection now on display at Sursock Museum, takes viewers back in time to Levantine ports, towns and villages as seen in the '20s and '30s.The photos were not originally framed as artworks. Cartographic aerial photography first emerged in 1850s and 1860s – when French photographer Nadar took shots from a hot air balloon. As displayed in a first-floor gallery, the Debbas Collection photos aren't fastened to the walls but placed within glass panels and suspended by discreet wires.
