This week the French Protestant Cemetery has been greeting visitors with the thought-provoking exhibition "Rue de Damas, Chemin de Rencontre," which aims to illustrate the Damascus Road as a historic location of division and connection.The meeting of chaos and peace reminded Lacoste of the Damascus Road's long history as a meeting place, from the New Testament's tale of Paul and Jesus' encounter to the Green Line that infamously separated Civil War-era West and East Beirut. He sought out photos of the area that reflected this motif.Lacoste located 22 photos from the work of photographers Patrick Baz and Georges Boustany, the Arab Image Foundation's collection and L'Orient-Le Jour's archives.Ranging from antique pictures of Ottoman Beirut to smartphone snaps, each image captures an unlikely meeting. Lacoste says the brief exhibition, wrapping June 21, has drawn impressive crowds.
