A rich photographic archive of Lebanon has surfaced in the most unlikely of places, when a London-based artist discovered a homeless Lebanese photographer had a previously unknown collection of more than 27,000 shots.Impressed, Dabrowska decided to launch a project that would combine Alkarssifi's work in a book called "A Lebanese Archive," to be published by the London-based nonprofit organization Book Works.The project will also include several exhibitions and an archive to be established as part of the Arab Image Foundation Collection in Beirut. In parallel to "A Lebanese Archive," Ania Dabrowska's also created the "House of Homeless" (Arlington Portraits), which is a socially engaged project positioned between conceptual photography and portraiture, which aims to challenge social stigma and stereotypes about homelessness.
