Let’s Be Honest. The Weather Helped

This project by The Atlas Group, a fictional collective created by photographer Walid Raad, maps out bullet holes with coloured circles on black and white photographs. The colours represent the type of bullet and the country that they come from. Questioning traditional divisions between fiction and reality, it strives to depict historical events in Lebanon – particularly the long period of civil wars – and the collective trauma characterising them.
