The Arab Image Foundation (AIF) is an independent association created in Beirut in 1997, opening new pathways for photography and image practices. Uniquely positioned at the intersection of artistic creation, research, and archiving, the AIF explores, questions and confronts the complex social and political realities of our time in thought-provoking ways. At the core of the AIF’s work is its collection of over 500,000 photographic objects and documents from and related to the Middle East, North Africa and the Arab diaspora.
