Photographer James Kerwin is showcasing the beauty of derelict buildings throughout Lebanon. His collection Lebanon; a Paradise Lost features breathtaking imagery of grand and crumbling mansions, theatres and historic buildings.

 

“Many examples of the derelict architecture are of a direct result of a 2006 conflict,” he says in the description. “A conflict that had hit an already recovering capital, recovering from no less than twenty-nine years of war.”

 

“Lebanon has been of interest [to me] for around three years now. [Beirut] is a unique city. It is still recovering, is vibrant and plays host to friendly and passionate locals,” the photographer told Lonely Planet.

Much of the architecture depicted in Kerwin’s collection dates back over 7000 years to the Phoenecian period.

The collection features stunning balcony-views from historic structures, an old, crumbling synagogue, and the outer facade of residential buildings.
