Send your photos of Syria this way…

December 19th, 2010 · 1 Comment · Culture

Thanks to Umniyya‘s great idea, it would be great if you could send your most iconic photos of Syria to mail at, and we’ll start posting them here. Who knows, if it gets big enough, we could even create a dedicated website.

Umniyya’s going to get the ball rolling, by scanning some family images and emailing them to me.

Of course, you’ll get a full credit on here, plus a link to your blog or website if you want one.

The inspiration for all of this was an email from Dima. She sent me some amazing old images of Syria, which turned out to be from Camille Alexandre Otrakji‘s incredible collection. You can find the whole lot here.

    i wish i was home i would have scanned them right away.
    but i need like 6 months to get back.:(

    i have a photo pf my grandma wearing tradional clothes and another of my grandpa with my uncles when they were tiny children. i think those were taken on 1930’s

    the most frustrating thing that my late uncle had this obssession of taking photos of everything around him . i hear from my father that he had a box full of photos of syria and people.
    but i have no idea where this box is now:(
