Translated literally into the English language,
barzakh means isthmus, and is purely a geographical
term. However, in the Arabic it often takes on a
philosophical meaning, which denotes the midway
station in the transcendence of the spirit. A stage often
plagued by crisis and exile, but also by elation and
hope for the future.
These photographs are a meditation on that mysterious
state of being where the explicit manifestations of everyday
life - its architecture, forms and daily practices - seem to
transcend their material reality for a fleeting moment.
