The National: The Middle East Archive Project puts the Arab world in focus with no filter

New-to-me, from The National: The Middle East Archive Project puts the Arab world in focus with no filter . “The sepia and grayscale tones of the images on the account are no filter effect. The pictures are a true snapshot of bygone era, forming Darah Ghanem’s social media archive of personal pictures from the Mena region. Ghanem, a Palestinian who lives in Dubai, started the project last year. It runs on Instagram and Facebook, posting crowdsourced material from people in the region who are willing to share old family photos, documenting the stories behind them. The project’s Instagram page has started to garner greater attention, with more than 2,000 followers and people sending in new images every day.”
