This book presents photographs from Fouad Elkoury forty-year career, many of which have not been published until now.
From Beirut to Paris, from Cairo to Istanbul, and in other places where Elkoury has left a part of himself behind, his images form a pictorial autobiography across different cultures.
Regardless of his subject concrete skeletons of skyscrapers under construction, an armed solder waiting behind a bank of sandbags, a fur coat drying on a clothesline Elkoury's photographs convey the unavoidable passing of time.
