“THE PHOENICIAN COLLAPSE”
traces an intimate examination of the complex Lebanese social mosaic for the last 7 years during the unfolding of the worst national economic crises the world has seen in more than 150 years.
I have lived through its collapse, amidst the fears, the ghosts, the echoes of the explosion, the sectarianism, and again the rising then fading hopes during these years through the challenge of raising my son here.
I am no longer an outsider. Photography is personal, life is personal. After all these years, Lebanon is my home and it is demanding that I tell its story.

The Phoenician Collapse is a personal tale of a crisis within a crisis to create a visual testament to the memory of the twilight of a glorious nation.

The book has been curated by the acclaimed photo editor SARAH LEEN, is part of the “Jalón Ángel photography books collection” (USJ), and is produced by  FOTOEVIDENCE and the Jalón Ángel Archive (UNIVERSIDAD DE SAN JORGE)

The book includes a foreword by Amin Maalouf, winner of the Prix Goncourt in 1993 and, the 2010 Prince of Asturias Award, and It includes a special drawing done by the Lebanese artist RenoZ.  It will be enhanced with journals by Diego and his life partner, journalist Ethel Bonet, author of The Yazidi Genocide, reflecting on their personal experience during the collapse. The book has been curated by acclaimed photo editor Sarah Leen and it will be published in collaboration with FotoEvidence and Universidad de San Jorge de Zaragoza. It includes a foreword by Amin Maalouf, Prix Goncourt, as well as the 2010 Prince of Asturias Award,  and a journal written by ethel Bonet, author of The Yazidi Genocide, illustrated with personal photographs of the author.
 
The book will go to press in February 2022 and will be shipped before May 2022.

The campaign to support “THE PHOENICIAN COLLAPSE” begins TODAY, November 1st.  Every bit of support counts. I wonder whether you might join me and the creative team by backing the campaign and pre-ordering the book, a visual testament of the twilight of a nation.
