Catalogue documenting an exhibition by Algerian photographer Farida Hamak, displayed at Darat al Funun in 2005. Upon invitation of the French Cultural Centre Amman, Hamak took photographs of the Jordan River, not depicting the river itself, but the river banks and areas surrounding it. The catalogue combines coloured prints with comments of the photographer on her project, transmitting a detailed yet highly subjective picture of life alongside the Jordan River.
