My Neck Is Thinner Than A Hair

The only part that remains intact after a car bomb explodes is the engine. Landing on balconies, roofs or adjacent streets, the engine is projected tens and sometimes hundreds of metres away from the original site of the bomb. During the wars, photo-journalists competed to be the first to find and photograph the engines. In Beirut, Walid Raad gathered one hundred photographs produced by photo-journalists from the archives of An-Nahar Research Centre and The Arab Documentation Centre.
