- Part of...Funny, How Thin The Line Is: Documents from The Atlas Group Archive
- Gallery 2
These documents are attributed to a historian, Dr. Fakhouri. Until his death in 1993, Dr. Fakhouri was the most important historian of contemporary Lebanon. At the time of his death and to everyone's surprise, the historian bequeathed his noteboks, films, videotapes and photographs to The Atlas Group for preservation and display.
Dr. Fakhouri was in the habit of carrying two 8mm cameras with him wherever he went. On one camera he exposed a frame every time he thought the wars ended. On the other, he exposed a fram of film every time he came across the sign for a doctor or dentist's office. He titled the films Miraculous Beginnings and No, Illness Is Neither Here Nor There.
