Art exhibitions, fairs and Internet platforms the world over have been awash with the work of Syrian artists over the past three years."Silence in Damascus," an exhibition of 23 of Zaghouleh's photographs currently adorning the walls of Gemmayzeh's Art on 56th gallery, seek to shed light on how Syria looked before 2011 – when the tragedy of arms overcame popular demonstrations calling for democratic changes to the state.Taken between 2006 and 2008, the works in "Silence in Damascus" capture glimpses of alleyways, old houses and street scenes.When framing these photos the artist focused his lens on traditional Syrian edifices, so many of the spaces depicted here seem abandoned. Nassouh Zaghouleh's "Silence in Damascus" is on show at Art on 56th gallery in Gemmayzeh until June 21 .
