Created by Magnum Photographer Moises Saman and Dutch-Iranian artist Daria Birang, Discordia presents an innovative representation of the Arab Spring. Without any captions, images are juxtaposed, cut and sometimes assembled in ‘collages’ to offer a narrative combining different voices. As an alternative to a straightforward journalistic investigation, Discordia features an intimate insight of the conflict through a focus on its expression and theatrical language.

Presented at Gazebook Photobook Festival, the exhibition extract from the book Discordia.
