In 1991, and after 14 years in the Lebanese Communist Party, Hannah Mrad was recruited into the Lebanese Army’s Ammunition and Explosives division. Months into his new assignment, he found himself unable to remember the names of the thousands of explosive devices he was meant to master. He began to photograph them, to enlarge them, hoping that his human-sized photographs would aid his memory. They didn’t and he was let go.
