In 2004, at the age of 21, photographer Adnan Farzat decided to settle in the country his parents had fled twenty years earlier: Syria, where he would live for 3 years. Without knowing it, he immediately took the first pictures of what would become of the fanzine لحظات منسية, Forgotten Moments.
He walks daily through the streets, seeking to immerse himself in the daily life of this country that he knows deeply while being a foreigner.
Random encounters and his walks, he compulsively collects these snapshots, like a logbook, mainly so as not to forget.
The choice of printing in risography reinforces this feeling of past memories, as erased over time, the photographs are almost nothing more than mental images.
This collection by Adnan Farzat takes us back to that distant period that history increasingly erases, those forgotten moments.
