These messages, vaguely called security updates, arrived several times a day and marked a completely different way of living my life in Lebanon from what I experienced before and after.

At first glance they seem plain and clear but in reality they conceal in the open the very codes that make Lebanon what it is. My photographs are personal, nostalgic, at times absurd. They relate to traces, objects, landscapes, forming a notebook or \u2028a diary. At times touristic in their nature, taken by someone who knows the country very well but still is, in essence, a foreigner (\u2018a spy\u2019), the photos delve deeper into the tissue of Lebanese spirit, but also more importantly into my own perceptions and projections. \r<\/p><p>\u2018Are you a spy?\u2019 \u2013 a question frequently asked in a joking manner in Lebanon.
