Syria - a lost country

1995 - 1996

Before Syria was a burned and broken land I wandered through the country, meeting wonderful people with a rich cultural heritage and immense character.

Damascus streets.

Of Aleppo and Damascus

So much lost now to dictators, war and the all consuming lust for power.




Cameras and Film

For Syria I carried a Nikon F90 or F80s and used Kodachrome 64 as I liked its robust nature for travel, where you could often experience temperature extremes.

Throughout my Middle Eastern travels I carried Nikon primes, a 24mm, 50mm and 135mm.
