The 2011 Libyan Revolution was a nine month youth led uprising that toppled the Gaddafi regime. It began with peaceful demonstrations, which the Gaddafi regime attempted to suppress with bullets and... More > heavy artillery, before escalating into a war. The revolution inspired many young artists to express their hope for freedom and support for the revolution with graffiti after having their right to freedom of speech oppressed for forty-two years. The photographs in this book document a small portion of the graffiti seen in Tripoli and Gharyan three weeks after the liberation of both of these cities. The graffiti and street art capture the culture, humor, resilience, strength, pain and hope of the Libyan people as they experienced their first precious days of freedom. Proceeds from this book will go to several Libyan aid agencies to help those who were injured and displaced from their homes during the revolution.< Less
