2011 ...

Assad has just committed to what will start the Syrian tragedy. In Beirut, pro-Assad Syrians demonstrate. They belong to the thousands of countrymen who wear themselves out as migrant workers on the construction sites rebuilding Beirut, on gigantic businesses-centers and in archaeological excavations. 
Other portraits, such as for example the Vietnamese, Indian and Pakistani women, who take care of the children of the new upper classes here, remain to be done.
The images here are only the beginning of an attempt to seize this Mediterranean capital in its still fragile state of peace.
