Letitia Gallery's short-term exhibition "Lebanese Prisons" takes a closer look at the poor conditions of detention centers around the country, through the lens of photojournalist Haitham Moussawi. Shown within the framework of the first Beirut Image Festival, Moussawi's 20-odd black-and-white snaps are a fraction of the thousands he has taken over the last three years. Moussawi has been the head of the photography department at Al-Akhbar newspaper since it was established and has also been a freelance photographer for Agence France Presse since 1996 .According to Omar Nashabe, a criminal justice analyst and adviser on human rights to the Lebanese government, prison conditions in Lebanon do not match international standards. Nashabe worked with Moussawi on the project, to provide information on the issue.
