Lebanon - war writings and images
The summer 2006 conflict between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon was reflected through a variety of media in the words and images of ordinary people. Blogs proliferated, emails zapped through cyberspace and text messages punched out instant reactions around the globe.
Together with stunning photographs that catalogue the beauty and diversity of Lebanon, as well as the destruction of war, "A Lost Summer" is a unique homage to a country and its people in a time of conflict.
