Cardboard Castle is a selection from five years of photography of the metropolitan area of Damascus, Syria prior to the 2011 Syrian uprising. This book consists of four sections depicting divisions and contrasts of the capital, and political advertisement as a reflection of governmental policies. The construct of a cardboard castle reflects that while the state projected an image of omniscience, omnipotence and omnipresence, the image was hollow. These were parapets made of paper, with the poor and working classes tasked with propping up the facade.
