Bayroumi (4,600 questions)


This  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 4600 negatives of 35mm format, packed in cardboard boxes and plastic bags.
