Shot in Damaskus, Palmyra, Aleppo, Homs and Deir Ez-Zur in 2001, Krass Clement depicts in this very personal travel and photobook a world of yesterday. In “Impasse Hotel Syria” he describes the recent past. Just 15 years ago Clement took pictures of a country that today has undergone a complete and shocking change. An entire country and an entire people have become victims of war, and this is thoughtful and creates a sounding board when you see the beautiful photographs of Clement, one of our greatest living Danish photographers. The photographs are lyric and seeking and casts a look back at a society that a few years ago was apparently so well, but now lies in ruins.
