Photojournalist STEFAN CHRISTOFF will be displaying a series of
striking photographs captured throughout Lebanon in 2005 &
2006 at Montreal's Sablo Café, from mid-April until the end of May
2007. Christoff's images bring to life the realities of life and struggle
from Lebanon utilizing sharp artistic edges and beautiful colors.

From the streets of Beirut to the open skies of south Lebanon,
Christoff's photos outline sketches realities of life in Lebanon. The
photographs convey the human realities of a nation facing major
political upheaval in recent years, marked by massive street
demonstrations, international political intervention & a
devastating Israeli military attack in 2006.

Christoff's images also document the social and political conditions
of Palestinian refugees living in Lebanon.

From the Palestinian refugee camps of Ain el-Hilweh in southern
Lebanon, to Burj el-Barajneh in the southern suburbs of Beirut,
hundreds of thousands of Palestinian refugees live in exile as a
result of the creation of the state of Israel in 1948.
