Delivery policy (edit with Customer reassurance module)
The author of these image went all over the country during the spring of 2009, and had the opportunity to photograph monuments and places that are now missing or destroyed by the conflict. His images are beautiful memories of a world that no longer exists, and they stand in silent denunciation of the ravages of war, destroying a heritage not only Syrian but global, which made up a part of the memory of humanity.
The suggestive images of Pío Cabanillas, in black and white and with hardly any human figures, make up an intimate and serene portrait of the country, which is complemented by a selection of classic Syrian poems. Along with them, the external vision provided by the genuine pen of Mark Twain, who made a trip to the Mediterranean in 1867 from which his Guide for Innocent Travelers was born. His evocative words, taken from that work, describe a world very similar to the current one, a way of being and living millennia old, which nevertheless today is poorer, with the loss of a good part of its cultural heritage.
