This picture from Aleppo has the world paying attention again. Photography can do that.
Photographer Joseph Eid provided the man’s story to the Washington Post today.
“He was a wealthy man,” Eid told The Post. “He speaks five languages. He studied medicine, went to Italy and had a lipstick enterprise.”
Eid, who has photographed the civil war in Syria since it began, had met Anis before. He collected old American cars and was trying to hold onto them during the bombardment.
That was a little more than a year ago.
They’re all gone now.
