Emphas.is :: This book is not a tribute to the photographer Rémi Ochlik, killed at age 28 in Homs, Syria on February 22nd 2012. This book is a continuation of his work. Remi wanted to make this book, a chronicle of the Arab Revolution that he witnessed. But he did not have the time.
Remi had thirteen months for his reporting: from January 2011 starting on Avenue Bourguiba in Tunis, Tunisia, until February 22nd, the day of ground offensive by the troops of President Bashar al-Assad on the Syrian city of Homs. In just a few months, from the first signs of the Tunisian uprising to the larger movement in four other parts of the Arab world that saw thousands of oppressed people taking to the streets and fighting for their freedom, Rémi managed to photograph and immortalize this movement and the legitimate anger of people suffocated by years of dictatorships.
