It can be a hateful thing, driving behind a cargo truck.In Lebanon as much as anyplace else, trucks can also be a source of great surprise.Many older models of truck can make you wonder about their road worthiness, yet in Lebanon such vintage vehicles are also often adorned with paintings – whether figurative drawings, calligraphy or other symbols – enlivening the irritating, monstrous utility of cargo beds, bumpers and indiscernible metallic bits. Not content to show the photos alone, Kassatly accompanies her work with the truck ornamentations' different readings.The same aesthetic can be ascribed to Kassatly's trucks series.Many of the trucks depicted in Kassatly's photographs also attest to their operators' Lebanese patriotism.As gallerist Alice Mogabgab suggested, Kassatly's photographs bring new meaning to the working vehicles that other motorists often try to avoid.
