Beirut - City of Regrets

Lebanon, Beirut. Middle eastern Arab during November, 1983. A young Palestinian boy at the Tripoli front. This photograph is taken by Eli Reed. Just by looking at this photograph, one can assume that it's just a young boy standing in front of cloud of smoke. However, this one image can portray a lot meaning behind it. This boy is probably around 4-7 years old. There is a lot of fear going on in this photograph, as you can tell from the boy's expression on his face. You can also assume there must some type of conflict happening because of the smoke and explosion in the background. Eli Reed captured the main subject of this photo which is the young boy during the middle of war. I feel like he wanted to understand how the people of Lebanon could survive their days and nights.
