|Photos of Israel’s 33-day war against Lebanon on display at Tehran exhibit||
TEHRAN – The Israeli 33-day war of 2006 against Lebanon, the exchange of prisoners and martyrs of the war are all portrayed in a photo exhibition, which is underway at Tehran’s Enqelab Cultural Center.
Entitled “Tulips on Burnt Nests”, the photos were taken by the two photographer and documentarian brothers Vahid and Saeid Faraji during 10 different trips to Lebanon, the Persian service of MNA reported on Friday.
After the 33-day war, Lebanese people returned to their cities and arranged a big celebration in which the two brothers took part and recorded the events in their photos.
The exchange of prisoners of the war and the photos of the Lebanese prisoner Samir Qantar, who was kept in Israeli prisons for about 30 years, are among the highlights of the exhibit.
The Association of Photographers of Islamic Revolution and Sacred Defense had previously published a series of the displayed photos in a book named “Exchange”.
The exhibit, which opened on August 14, will be running until August 27 in the center located on Komeil St., off Navvab Safavi Highway.
