The Fouad Debbas Collection

We worked with the Debbas family on creating an identity for the Fouad Debbas Collection.

The Fouad Debbas Collection is a photographic collection comprising over 30,000 images from the Middle East – namely Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, Egypt, and Turkey – from 1830 till the 1960s. It was built over the course of two decades by Fouad César Debbas (1930-2001), who was an ardent believer in the importance of collecting and preserving images as a means of safeguarding cultural heritage.

The collection is housed in the Sursock Museum in Beirut.
