Bus Map Photo Action: Documenting Public TransportMonday July 18 2016View PhotosSee Event Photos

Ubiquitous yet invisible; popular yet underappreciated; problematic yet misunderstood. The public transport sector in Lebanon occupies many contradictory positions in our cities and our imagination.

Bus Map Project, in collaboration with FRAME, invites all lovers of the city to take part in a Collective Photo Action to tell stories of Lebanon's bus and van networks through the art of photography.

The Bus Map Photo Action will take place in three stages:

I. INFORM (July 15 at 6:30pm at Mansion)

An introductory session at Mansion to launch the bus map, discuss the Photo Action, and learn more about the public transport system in Lebanon. Speakers include:

Petra Samaha, urbanist & researcher.
Camille Abboud, co-founder of Lebanon: One Story at a Time.

This session is open to all. Participating photographers will be asked to create a user account on FRAME's photo action platform (registration opening soon).

II. DOCUMENT (July 16-18)

A weekend (plus Monday) of exploration and photography, based on themes and ideas introduced in the introductory session. Escape the heat, go somewhere new! Spark conversations, and bring life to your bus map by seeking out the stories behind those colored routes!

Deadline for uploading photo submissions to FRAME's platform is July 18, at midnight.

III. PUBLISH (July 23)

A workshop aimed at drafting a plan for collectively producing a series of photoessays, narrative maps, and other texts, based on submitted photographs. Participants are invited to discuss the themes and stories behind their captures, as well as to share their experiences of navigating Lebanon by public transport.

This session is aimed at participating photographers, but is open to all, and will be facilitated by a team of writers and photojournalists in collaboration with Mashallah News.
