E.D.L. print

Inkjet printing on Epson Semimatte photopaper + wood mounting


The ‘EDL’ (Electricité Du Liban) print features the modernist facade of the headquarters of Beirut’s electricity in the Mar Mikhael district, as architect Pierre Neema modeled it in the mid-1960s. This landmark, which once symbolized the progressiveness of Beirut, has come to be an obvious witness of its failings, with its dusty facade and half-lit neon sign.
