Beirut Prints was created as a continuity of the book Beyrouth Sur Ecoute. The objectives of this project are to show another image of Beirut and to promote the photographers. For the first series of the project, David Hury used images of photographers he knows. But he is in a constant look out for new photographs. The second series is open to anyone as long as the images reflect Beirut.
