This was taken on a research trip to Lebanon in 2011. I bought an iPhone and wanted to retrace the steps that Norman Faulkner, Professor Emeritus at the Alberta College of Art and Design, had done when he traveled to Lebanon in the late 1990's to find a glass workshop depicted on a postcard a student had given him 15 years earlier. I followed Norman's itinerary; but instead of a postcard, I had an image on my iPhone of a glassblower taken in Nahr al-Barid, a refugee camp north of Tripoli.
