На зелёных коврах хорасанских полей вырастают тюльпаны из крови царей

Изменчиво. Мы при нашей жизни наблюдали (к счастью, большинство издалека, но, кто-то нет, нет, не фигурально, прямо из окна) то, как умирают целые страны, идеи, может быть, будущие цивилизации, да? Гибнут под огнем демократического порыва, борьбы за какую-то хуету, форменное навязанное говно. И, увы, придется наблюдать это дальше. Вероятно, на примере своих жизней тоже. Два года назад было хорошо. Год назад лучше. Сейчас уже так себе… 

Ниже я просто выложу фото того, какой была та же Сирия, о которой сейчас жужжат в новостях с утра до ночи (даже прогноз погоды и тот сирийский…), еще 4-5 лет назад. Тогда, когда Катар, Турция и «Светлые» не решили, что хватит.

A father teaches his daughter to dance at the celebrations of The Feast of Saint Tekla in the Christian town of Ma'loula FOR GALLERY FOR PHOTOGRAPHY PAGE.- TO GO LIVE EARLY SEPTEMBER,.... FOR GALLERY/SLIDESHOW FOR PHOTOGRAPHY PAGE – CAN BE PRODUCED ANY TIME BUT SHOULD GO LIVE IN EARLY SEPTEMBER...  AN IMPERFECT NORMALITY An Imperfect Normality is a retrospective exhibition of pictures by Tommie Lehane of a Syria that was. Like dozens, and more, periods throughout Syria’s long history, this time is now past and consigned to the history books. Currently ravaged by war and chaos, it is hard to imagine a place that, to those who lived within its territory or who crossed its borders, was a relatively normal place to be. This work seeks to document a normality whilst hinting at its imperfections and considering the effect of war as a method of change.  The Images are from 2005 and 2009 when the photographer visited initially as a tourist and on the second occasion stayed mainly in the house of a friend in a tiny village. He was there for a few weeks for each period of shooting.  Al Hamidiyah village The work is focused around the normality of life in a place where the obvious undercurrents have now resulted in the awful situation that now exists. Lehane had planned to return in 2012 to focus on the "Greeks of Al Hamidiyah", the village where some of these images were taken, but events overtook his plans and through war the Syria he had come to know no longer exists.    Lehane's practise is primarily centered on the exploration of place. Unusually, he has a dual focus on the Middle East and a small village Castlegregory, in the Dingle Penninsula. Tommie has been widely exhibited in Ireland and Europe and also at the start of 2015 in war torn Aleppo in Syria.   In 2014 Tommie Lehane was the recipient of the Alliance Française Photography Laureate. The exhibition runs in the Fire House Gallery Dublin from September 10th to September 25th.

Members of the Syrian Academy of Gastronomy taste Aleppine cuisine at a restaurant in the historic city of Aleppo October 21, 2007. With silk road fame and cosmopolitan prosperity, today's Syrian city of Aleppo was the culinary capital of the Middle East before cultural and commercial decline took its toll. Syria is opening up its economy in the last few years after decades of nationalisation and state control and reviving interest in the city's cuisine.
