I took these photographs during aimless wanderings around downtown Beirut in 1998, but I only got round to tinting them 21 years later, weeks before my second trip to Beirut.
Why tint these particular photos with such lively colours? To add an air of optimism to overwise tragic, haunting scenes, to lift these bullet-ridden, broken buildings out of devastation and depression and to contribute in a way to the reconstruction process.
The collection is divided into two parts: The completed prototype prints & the "Making Of".
I'll soon be tinting another collection of Beirut 1998 photos.
These are B&W hand-tinted photographs. I essentially used my stock of Chinese inks which I'd bought in China in the 1980s. To see the "Making Of", follow this link: https://www.brenda-turnnidge.fr/p861557365
