"Portraits of Resilience," an exhibition by Sam Tarling, assembles 25 photos, all highlighting the resilience of Syrian and Lebanese communities living side by side on the margins of this country. Now up at Station Beirut in Jisr al-Wati, the project is a collaboration between the U.K. photojournalist and the Danish Refugee Council.This independent, nonprofit NGO works on various projects around Lebanon to help its vast number of refugees, while building relationships and relieving tensions between the Syrian and Lebanese communities.Tarling began working with the DRC in November 2017 .Many of the photos show Lebanese and Syrian communities working together on DRC projects to build public gardens, dig irrigation channels and the like.Yammine described how many of the projects work to ease tensions between the two communities and counter the growing resentment toward Syrians in Lebanon.Along the far wall of the gallery stand three photographs, each depicting a portrait of a woman standing confidently.Tarling said it was especially nice to see Lebanese and Syrians working together in Akkar.
