During his ten-year captivity in Lebanon, Souheil Bachar was photographed over twenty times by his captors. From time to time, his captors would leave him some of the Polaroids they deemed unfit to release to the local and international press. In these images, and for some unknown reason, his body and face were always cut out. With the few brushes and colors available to him in his cell, Bachar decided to fill himself in.
