eB007-Beirut 1984

eB007-Beirut part one:  Working in Beirut Lebanon during the 80s it was quite a time. This was the first time I had ever been out of the country for any length of time.  I had never been in the Middle East before I would often go walking around with my camera taking photographs. I had no idea just how dangerous this was people would stop me and ask Yeah, what do you think you are doing or you cannot be walking in these neighborhoods with gestures to the camera.

Yes I was doing it all the time little did I know that I could easily spent years in prison or be held for ransom.  Working for CBS News in Lebanon during the early 80s was quite an adventure. I got to meet great people like Larry Pentax, Bob Simon and, many, many more. I was there for almost 2 ½ years.  This book is a testimony of everyday life in Beirut during those troubled times.

 All the images in these e-books were photographed and processed by David P. Griffin and all copyrights belong to

the artist David P. Griffin. In cooperation with Griffin Communications,

 Equipment used, I started out with Nikon, and I had three bodies and 20 different lenses.

F2’s, and FM were the best camera bodies out at that time. I also had a

Broncos 645 medium format camera was my preference. Some Calumet 4/5 large-format.

If a camera has a focus, an iris, and on and off switch, then I am in my element. 

It does not matter how much you paid for a camera it is the person operating that counts.

 All the black-and-white images were processed and scanned in by hand and by me. All of the color images were

also scanned and PhotoShoped by me personally

I am responsible for everything you see the good the bad and the ugly.
