These photographers are showing Lebanon's beautiful abandoned locations

Because heritage is identity!

Lebanese Urbex (Leburbex for short) is a movement founded by Lebanese photographers who share the common interest of exploring urban and abandoned locations in Lebanon.

The purpose of the community is to raise awareness of the importance of these old structures and constructions. They believe that these are the real hidden gems of Lebanon.

Leburbex has another goal as well. The preservation of these remarkable sites (buildings, houses, factories..) is a priority for the team.

The movement believes that once we lose our heritage, we lose our identity. That is why members are currently working on establishing an NGO to serve their purposes.

The future NGO is said to put pressure on authorities and work alongside municipalities in order to preserve and properly renovate these gems.

Old buildings and houses are endangered in our city. The fight for their survival is crucial for saving our Lebanese heritage.

Leburbex also plans weekly trips to Lebanese cities and towns as a hunt for abandoned places. You can follow their adventure on their Instagram page.
