An Inside View of Arab Photography.

Samer Mohdad was a 10-year-old boy living in the mountain village of his Druse ancestors when Lebanon’s civil war broke out in 1975. His life changed overnight: His childhood playmates were now his sworn enemies. The traumatic experience of the war, which lasted until 1990, stayed with him and, Mr. Mohdad believes, eventually led him to photography.
