On the afternoon of Tuesday 04 August, two explosions at the port of Beirut devastated the Lebanese capital. At the time of writing, the two blasts and proceeding fires have caused over 200 deaths, 7,000 injuries, and an estimated 300,000 people have lost their homes. Launched today, For the love of Beirut features photographs by over 60 international artists, on sale until midnight on 26 August Beirut time. The fundraiser is led by Ruwa and Gulf Photo Plus in partnership with Beirut Center of Photography, and includes contributions from independent Lebanese artists, as well as members of NOOR, Magnum, and the wider global community.
