Two years on - a photographic account of the 40 days of unrest in Bahrain, now available

London, January 2013:

For forty days, from 14 February to 25 March 2011, history unfolded in Bahrain as unrest spiralled, bringing all that was familiar abruptly into conflict. In a series of incidents, the peace and harmony, the multi-ethnicity, inclusiveness and openness that once symbolized the island nation of Bahrain, were tested.

Miracle Publishing’s 20/20 is a photographic book that brings into focus Bahrain’s role within this unprecedented era in the Arab world. Captured and documented through the camera lens, the images in this photo essay illustrate in detail the heartache and anguish that the Kingdom of Bahrain experienced. The pictures are sourced from professional photo-journalists, amateur photographers, government organisations, political societies and international bodies providing an honest and neutral narrative of this period of history. 20/20 presents a complete view of the country during this time, and seeks to illustrate, where words may fail, the humane values that unite the country.

Khalid Juman, Chairman of Miracle Publishing said, “The schematic for these two books stem from the realism that we are a visual society and that the power of photo-journalism cannot be underestimated as a tool of social awareness and a chronicle of our collective memories. Bahrain has, and always will, treasure freedom of expression and thought. 20/20 will serve as a source of enlightenment and an opportunity to evaluate and appreciate what lies at the heart of it all.”
