Edge of Elysium Vol. 1

By Lara Atallah


Edge of Elysium, Vol 1 by Lara Atallah is the first of a two-part journey through time, space, and land along Southern European and Western Asian coastlines of the Mediterranean. Damaged Polaroids are interspersed with short texts that navigate the ideas of love, belonging, loss and grief through narratives filled with quiet images. The book reflects on the futility of manmade borders by exploring human experiences tainted by trauma and melancholy, but is also imbued with hope.
