23 fotografie krásné předválečné Sýrie

Téměř denně vidíme v mediích otřesné fotografie a videa zničené Sýrie, což je výsledkem strašné čtyřleté války. Rozbombardované domy, ulice poskládané z ruin, kompletně zničená infrastruktura. Větší část území je dnes pod kontrolou sekty "Islámský stát", která ustanovila právo šaría tam, kde ještě před pár lety na ulicích hrály děti, ženy nosili moderní šaty, po večerech zněli koncerty a živě bzučeli největší blízkovýchodní trhy.

Ještě do nedávna Sýrie byla suverénním státem, ve svobodném světě, kde nikoho nikdy by nenapadlo vyhodit do vzduchu památky antické architektury. A přesně takovou Sýrii, krásnou zemi ještě na začátku 21 století nám ukázali reportéři Ruposters ve své fotogalerii.

Starověká Palmyra, ještě donedávná turistická Mekka Sýrie. Dnes Palmyru zachvátili teroristy z IS a všechno bohatství již bylo rozprodáno na černém trhu. Vývoz kulturního dědictví je druhým největším zdrojem financováni IS po prodeji uloupené ropy.

Rok 2003. Syrští kuchaři připravují dort s marcipánem a pistáciemi, vážící čtyři tuny, na stadionu v Aleppo. Tehdy Syřané překonali rekord Nizozemska, jejích koláč měřil 200 metrů čtverečních.

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.

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.

Ještě donedávna v Sýrii bylo všude vidět zahraničních turisty. Nyní cizinci na území Sýrie, jsou buď váleční zpravodajové, vojenští poradci, anebo teroristi, kteří přišli "džihád" z celého světa.

Pekaři si vtipkuji trhu v Aleppo. Tehdy ještě nikdo si nemohl představit, že v blízké budoucnosti na ulicích města lidi budou mířit ne z imaginárních zbrani, ale ze skutečných zbrani, zakoupeních v zemi na peníze Saúdské Arábii.
