About Impasse Hotel Syria
Shot in Damascus, Palmyra, Aleppo, Homs and Deir Ez-Zur in 2001, Krass Clement depicts in this very personal travel and photobook a world of yesterday. In “Impasse Hotel Syria” he describes a past that is recent, but rapidly receding in global memory. Twenty years ago Clement took pictures of a country that today has undergone a complete and shocking change. An entire country and an entire people have become victims of war, and this is thoughtful and creates a sounding board when you see Clement’s beautiful photographs. The photographs are lyric and seeking and casts a look back at a society that a few years ago was apparently so well, but now lies in ruins.
Krass Clement’s work originates from a fertile and imaginative thought process, a stream of consciousness that is clearly evident in his later books, more concerned with capturing a state of mind than with situations. His books are less documentary depictions than subjective moods; somewhere between spectator and reality.
