Portrait Index

Portrait Index by Studio Soussi, (Sidon, Lebanon), 100 pages, approximately 150 portraits on each page. This installation of 3,600 passport photos is a project by Walid Raad and Akram Zaatari with the Arab Image Foundation. And they are all the work of a single commercial photographer, Antranik Anouchian (1908-1991), who ran a busy studio in the cosmopolitan, multi-ethnic city of Tripoli in Lebanon, where Muslims, Christians and Jews coexisted.
