The book documents the Bayroumi collection, temporarily held
in storage boxes at the Arab Image Foundation waiting to be catalogued and re-housed in a safe archiving environment,
until it is ultimately digitised and made available for online access.
The collection was brought in by AIF member Akram Zaatari, from the studio of Mohamad Bayroumi in Saida, Lebanon and it is still being researched.
It is a collection of approximately 4,600 negatives of 35mm format, packed in cardboard boxes and plastic bags.
