A figure on Lebanon's documentary and arts scene since the 1970s, Saab has devoted many of her works to intimate examinations of war and its effects.The exhibition comprises 22 black-and-white photos of temporary tent constructions – which have sprung up in the Bekaa Valley to accommodate Syrian refugee families – and refugee children, displayed on facing walls of the gallery.A third wall is hung with three enormous images printed on advertising canvas. An adjacent room is projecting Saab's 2016 documentary short "One Dollar A Day".The show is not a conventional take on war and refugees, and that's exactly what Saab intended.These are interspersed with shots of Beirut advertising spaces displaying Saab's images with a message asking how people can live on a dollar a day.As the film nears its end, Saab's images are joined by the voice of internationally feted writer and visual artist Etel Adnan, with whom Saab first worked when she was a young journalist.
